Below is an excerpt from UtahJazz.com about the new coaching hire:
The Utah Jazz announced today that Sidney Lowe has been hired as an assistant coach, and will join Scott Layden and Jeff Hornacek to complete head coach Tyrone Corbin’s coaching staff. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released.
Lowe and Corbin reunite after first working together as players in 1989-90 with the Minnesota Timberwolves during the expansion franchise’s inaugural NBA season. Lowe brings significant experience to the Jazz, having begun his coaching career in 1991 with the Timberwolves. The former NBA point guard has spent eight years as a head coach and 10 years as an assistant in the NBA and NCAA.
This is a significant change that I believe will help the young Jazz immensely. Lowe has been an assistant coach on two different teams that made a run through the playoffs to the Eastern Conference Finals. He has coached under the notorious Flip Saunders, and now has an opportunity to help an inexperienced and young Jazz team get back on track.
