Matt Harpring, knows the system.

forgetyourself: I like that idea. Matt is a very intelligent individual. How about Matt as coach and hires Stockton as assistant coach. That way you have a pretty good coach to start and are training another coach to take over when and if Matt leaves. I know, just a dream.

Hiring Harpring as the Head coach, and Stockton as his assistant, would be like hiring me as the President of Microsoft, and Bill Gates as my assistant.

I hope there's a scenario were Earl Watson at least becomes the Assistant Coach with the Jazz. If you want your guys to learn defense then Earl's the guy.

So what credentials should a coach have, anyway? An understanding of the game. Check. A passion for the game. Check. An ability to motivate others to play at the their best level. Check. I vision of a team playing together and a clear view of how to attain that vision with the players surrounding you. Check. Now how many of those qualification do you think John Stockton or Earl Watson have? How many don't they have?

Bill Sharman, HOF as player and coach
Lenny Wilkins, HOF as a player and coach. Player-Head Coach for three years for two different teams. All-Star for three of the four years he was Head Coach

John Stockton -- HOF as player, would be as coach.

What's taking so long? It's not like the Jazz didn't know they were going to make this change.

Maybe coaches in the NBA know that the coach of the Jazz comes with alot of baggage. Jerry Slaon learned that late in his tenure and I am sure that Coach Corbin had to deal with it all his time as coach. There are too many people with their fingers in the mix, too many people trying to micromanage. Jerry Sloan was at his best when HE was in charge. Coach Corbin never had that kind of support so it is no wonder qualified people don't want to be involved with the Jazz

I can't help but think our brilliant GM is waiting to interview his top choice in Boylen until the Spurs run in the playoffs is over. We have heard of very little activity and I believe that is the reason. I sure hope not though!!!!!!

@dlw7 - as opposed to every other coaching job in the NBA?

Hiring a coach in the NBA is like setting up dominoes to fall. NY Knicks or Lakers first. Then maybe Minnesota and Golden State. Then maybe the Jazz come up in the rear. By the time it gets there, only Boylen and a couple of college assistants are left with any interest.
