The prevailing comment in support of Coach Corbin on this and other sites is that he had to deal with a tough situation all four years, especially in the last year when all of the veterans were allowed to walk. This is true. After this decision by management (which ultimately was a very good decision), you cannot blame Coach Corbin for failing to compile a better record. You certainly can't blame poor shooting on him, and maybe even bad defense isn't entirely attributable to him.

But the one area where he has to take full responsibility concerns his PT decisions. This was supposed to be the year of developing the youth, and developing = lots of PT. To have given so many minutes to Jefferson, Williams, Lucas, and even Rush (even though the first two certainly played hard) at the expense of Burks, Kanter, Evans, and Gobert was a serious and fundamental mistake. To have started the "Foundation Five" together in only 4 out of 82 games is an extremely grievous error, and effectively wasted a golden year of development opportunities.

In the one area where he had 100% control, he failed to do what his mission called for.

Well, you can eliminate all the twitter fan comments that talk about Millsap and Jefferson as some type of option...unless your goal is either missing the playoffs or becoming and 8th seed/road kill.

Proven results.

Don't start talking about the D-League teams they are playing on now. They are both on bad teams.

Atlanta finished 6 games under .500 and suddenly Millsap is some great allstar player?

Charlotte barely over .500?

Both in the incredibly weak Eastern Conference?

Some fans must love eternal mediocrity and average entertainment. Like both guys but they were taking this team no where.

Most top tier teams seriously decline and then acquire talent and then over a period of a few years assemble young talent with some vets and they are on their way.

The Jazz are not signing Durrant, LeBron, or CP3 in free agency so the only legitimate change of getting a star is in the draft and build around them.....unless you like winning/losing half your games every year...and strangely some fans seem to be satisfied with that.

Yippeee...everyone gets a "participation" sticker!!

Gag.

Uh didn't Corbin have Jefferson and Millsap on his team last season? How did they do carrying the load? Oh that is right, they missed the playoffs. These are two players that are now supposed allstars but not until they left Corbins team?

The Jazz went young ONLY this season. What about the previous 2 pathetic seasons? What about the below average defense of his teams season after season despite alot of different players on the roster?

Coaches are responsibe for defensive schemes and holding players accountable to actually play defense they are capable of.

Why can Al Jefferson play better defense now vs the seasons he played for Corbin?

Did the Jazz show defensive improvement this season from beginning to end? No they finished last in the league!

Corbin did not show the ability to teach, train, and hold players accountable. Defense is also largely effort according to players including Al Jefferson himself. So why is Jefferson willing to make more effort this season than last while playing for Corbin?

How many reasons do you need? Stop making excuses for Corbin. Evidence is in every direction you look.

Nice/good guy but poor coach.

Ty Corbin showed what he could do with this group and it was not good enough. He just wasn't the right person for the job going forward. That does not mean he may not be the right man for a different opportunity in the future. I wish him the best, and hope that he can have another opportunity that fits his skills better. Certainly, this experience has helped him to become a better coach, but he probably will need some more "seasoning" before he gets another opportunity to be a head coach.

He needs to take Lindsey with him. He is the author or this shipwreck.

@ET Bass
How can you possibly be critical of Lindsey? This was his first year at the helm. He could have stood pat with last years team that had proven it was no where near being a contender, or you could start over with the young lottery picks we accumulated the last few years. I'm glad he made the choice he did because I was tired of seeing average Jazz teams. But this decision meant we needed to take a step back and anyone expecting great results this year was not being realistic. This is going to take some time but being critical after 1 season is pretty ridiculous. Lindsey needs a couple of years to pick his draft picks and free agents and coaching staff and see how we do before you can give him a fair chance. Be patient.

"He needs to take Lindsey with him."

You spelled "Gregg Miller" wrong.
