Utah Jazz interested in Detroit Pistons assistant
Earlier this week, Quin Snyder resigned from his position as Utah's head coach and now they are in the position of finding his replacement.
The Jazz released the following statement following Snyder's decision:
“Quin Snyder has embodied what Jazz basketball is for the last eight years,” Jazz owner Ryan Smith said in a statement. “The tireless work ethic and attention to detail Quin displayed each day is a testament to the professional he is. I have nothing but admiration for Quin and respect his decision.
“On behalf of Ashley and I along with our ownership group and our entire organization, we thank Quin and Amy from the bottom of our hearts for all of their contributions to the state of Utah and the Jazz and wish them nothing but the best.”
Now, it appears as if the Jazz have at least some interest in Detroit Pistons assistant, Jerome Allen.
Allen, who has been an assistant with the Pistons for one season, was previously interviewed for the vacant Boston Celtics head coach opening when Brad Stevens stepped down.
