    It's a no brainer that Corbin has to go. Attendance is down, didn't play the younger players enough (especially Gobert). Bring in someone like Stan Van Gundy or George Karl. Get two good players in the draft, sign you two good free agents who can play D and contribute offensively. Trade Hayward, let Williams and Jefferson walk. With our cap room, you can entice two really good free agents to come here and get into the playoffs.

    i think corbin has what? a quarter of a season + a shortened season + a full season to coach...i think there's a lot of room for growing with those times...and Jeff Hornacek...taking a suns places people didnt expect them to reach....with eric bledsoe being out most of the time...Ty Corbin can't fully utilize the skills of his only knock on Hornacek would be he couldnt use miles plumlee effectively...but...its because of the emergence of Markieff Morris...and he always play the guy with the hot hand...unlike corbin...where in...he'll probably pull em out...and put Richard Jefferson or Marvin Williams in...i just hope we dont get vinny del negro as coach...he is like Corbin..

    I wonder if John ready to take a head coaching job...i doubt it...since he is a family man...but...Danny Ainge...reached out to John Stockton and Jeff Hornacek for the coaching job at boston...before settling with Doc Rivers...during their run to the just saying...i think John could be like Larry Bird...who find success in whatever he does...

    Once we have DL's new coach in place, I'm sure we will all feel a lot better about our Utah Jazz.

    The blame for this season lys mostly on management ! Especially Lindsey. Comparing Ty and Jeff is apples and oranges. Jeff was given the opportunity to grow into his job with the Suns expecting a terrible season. Ty was never given that chance at all! Jazz fans should be grateful for the work ethic, honesty and loyally Ty showed. He never once complained or avoid blame or throw anyone under the bus! I hope he gets a chance to show his coaching abilities without the handicaps he had here in Utah.

    The Jazz are being dragged into the 21th century, kicking and screaming. This is not your tradition-loving Jazz of old, this is NuJazz where they don't even have the decency to inform their coach he's not wanted anymore, instead choosing to advertise his position and see who might be interested. And what if they don't get the applicants they hoped for? Would they go back to Corbin, begging forgiveness? Hold your head up high, coach, you did the best you could with what you were handed. Good luck at your next job and also good luck to the Jazz, they're gonna need it.

    Did the Jazz front office expect a different result for this season? I said from day one this season would be horrible as far as their record. To give Ty an inexperienced team and expect anything different than they got is unfair. My guess is they wanted to get rid of him all along. Give him a crappy team so they have a good place in the loto and have a "reason" to fire the coach at the same time. Watch, they'll hire their new coach, bring in their new loto pick and then pickup some vet free agents to try to build the team back up.

    If Corbin is brought back there will be a LOT of green seats the ESA. OK, this tough season for fans is finally over. We all want the TOUGHNESS and WINNING Jazz basketball back again. I'm tired of hearing the excuses made for Corbin (tough circumstances, expiring free agents, etc), frankly, the Jazz were SOFT and had NO DEFENSE over the past 4 years. On top of that, Corbin did a mediocre job in the development process this year as well. I loved that Kanter questioned why they didn't just go all young since this was a year for development.

    IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE. The Jazz Brass made a huge blunder at the end of last season by not letting Corbin go and promoting Hornacek. PLEASE do not make another major blunder this year by bringing Corbin and Co. back. It's time to move on and get a solid coach that can develop this young core. This team just needs that, this years draft, and some solid FAs. This enduring season is finally over, it's time for WINNING Jazz basketball again!

    It would be rare if not almost unprecedented for a coach completing his contract to retain his job with Corbin's 3 year losing NBA record. It's been going in the wrong direction by getting worse each of the last 2 years and not making the playoffs either year.

    The natives are restless and are really advocating for a change at this point. Not taking advantage of Jeff Hornacek when they had him in their hip pocket will probably haunt the Millers for years... especially after he becomes the NBA Coach of the Year after the playoffs. His jersey is hanging in arena rafters for heaven's sake.

    Too much loyalty can become detrimental. It certainly would in this case if a coaching change isn't made soon. The handwriting is on the wall. And it's very easy to read this time. Hopefully, the prudent thing for upper management to do will happen this time.

    Facts speak for themselves. With the exception of the shortened walkout season, the Jazz have gotten worse every year under Corbin. They couldn't even make the playoffs last year with Jefferson and Millsap, who were supplemented by multiple lottery pick caliber players.

    Corbin is a very nice person, but falls short in what it takes to get the most from his players and to play with consistency, which are vital characteristics of any successful coach and organization.

    The Jazz decision makers made a huge mistake in letting Jeff Hornacek go. After taking a young struggling team and turning them into a competitive playoff team in a single season, he is now the probable NBA coach of the year. And he was on the Jazz payroll just a year ago waiting for his chance. It finally came in Phoenix instead of SLC.

    Too many fans have seen enough after 3 seasons. Without a coaching change, there will no doubt be a significant dropoff in season ticket sales

    Corbin another chance? How green can the seats at ESA get? If Corbin is brought back we will find out.

    The Utah Jazz lost several games at first because they were young and Trey Burkes was injured along with several other veterans. Trey and the veterans returned and the Jazz start winning 40 to 45 percent of their games. I was thinking at the time that the Jazz would win 35 games this season, but when March 1st came around they start losing again like they did at the beginning of the season. There were some injuries but not as many. The key question is what happened in March to cause the onslaught of loses to happen? Perhaps tiredness, the rookie/young player wall, but I really believe they should of won more than four games since March 1st. This is the question that management needs to focus on to make sure it does not happen again as drastic as it did. Did the players lose confidence in the coaching staff and vice versa, or was scheduling to blame??? I hope the Jazz management can answer this question and come up with solutions?

    I want to thank Corbin and the coaching staff for all your hard work!! Enjoy your summer and relax and spend sometime with your families.
