Reading Between the Lines for a Utah Jazz Coach

Defense. Analytics.

This is what Dennis Lindsey has said he wants in a coach.  What does that mean for the Utah Jazz and their search for a head coach?  It means certain guys jump out as choices the Jazz would definitely want to look at and also guys that you can scratch off the list.

Guys that are out:

Lionel Hollins:  Not an analytical guy

Guys that the Jazz don’t have too much interest in:

Fred Hoiberg: Interested in the Golden State and Minnesota job

Van Gundy’s: Too expensive

Top 3 guys for the job right now:

Ettore Messina: Coaches CSKA Russia right now and would be first European born coach

Jim Boylen: Utes fans love him right? Seriously though is supposed to be a genius as long as he doesn’t have to recruit.

Quin Snyder: This guy is young and smart and could really be a good fit for the Jazz.

Wait and see guys:

Scott Brooks: Could be fired by OKC and he would be perfect to launch another rebuild to success.

Frank Vogel: Somehow I don’t think Frank is responsible for this collapse but will be the one without a job because of it.

Gets it if he wants it?

John Stockton:  When he’s ready I’m sure he will have a chance at whatever he wants within the Utah Jazz organization
