Jazz agrees to long-term contract extension with head coach Quin Snyder
“Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder has agreed to a long-term contract extension, league sources tell ESPN.
Snyder had two years left on his deal, and a new contract extends multiple years beyond that term, sources said.”
Snyder has two years remaining on his current contract and the extension will start once the current deal is over. It was a priority for the Jazz to get a deal done with him to be able to keep him longer. The team has experienced great results with his half-court offensive scheme and player development process.
The Jazz has experienced significant success with Snyder as their head coach. He has recorded a 227-183 regular-season record with the team and they have earned a spot in the Western Conference playoffs in three consecutive seasons.
The expectations for Snyder and the Jazz are high this season after the offseason acquisitions of Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic. They are expected to be one of the top teams in the NBA despite superstars teaming up to play in larger markets.
Many consider Snyder as being one of the early favorites to contend for the NBA’s Coach of the Year Award in anticipation of the success that the Jazz is expected to achieve this season.
