The future for the Utah Jazz is a little murky right now.
Just days ago, it was revealed that Quin Snyder was stepping down as head coach for the Western Conference squad, leaving a huge void for the team’s front office to fill.
Snyder has been a huge part of the team for nearly ten years, for better or for worse.
How exactly will the team move forward without him?

Obviously, there are many people in contention to take Snyder’s old job.
We have heard of numerous assistant coaches in the running for the role and now there are a couple more names to add to the list.
NBA wizard Adrian Wojnarowski says that former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel and Jazz assistant Lamar Skeeter will be interviewed for the job.
The search continues – and the list of candidates keeps growing.
Joining The Jazz
Some of the names already mentioned for the HC position are Johnnie Bryant of the New York Knicks, Will Hardy of the Boston Celtics, Charles Lee of the Milwaukee Bucks, Joe Mazzulla of the Celtics, Alex Jensen of the Jazz, and Terry Stotts, former head coach for the Portland Trail Blazers.
As you can see, that’s quite the list.
It needs to be an extensive search because there is a lot riding on this new head coach.
That means that this new head coach will either be taking over a new-look Jazz or will be trying to finally get the existing team far in the playoffs.
They have been this close to greatness for a while – will a new head coach make the Jazz reach their potential?
