The Utah Jazz are now the last remaining team in the NBA that has yet to appoint a new head coach for the 2022-23 season. This is, of course, under the assumption that no other coach gets fired between now and October.
The Jazz are in the process of interviewing their candidates after Quin Snyder decided to walk away from the club. According to Jazz team insider Tony Jones of The Athletic, former Dallas Mavericks champ Jason Terry has emerged as one of the contenders for the job opening:
The Utah Jazz interviewed Jason Terry today for their vacant head coaching job, league Sources tell The Athletic. Internal candidates Alex Jensen and Lamar Skeeter interviewed for the position this week. The Jazz are continuing with their first round of interviews.
Jason Terry played 19 years in the NBA, with his most memorable stint being with the Mavs playing alongside Dirk Nowitzki. The Jet was part of Dallas' unforgettable 2011 title run, and Terry played a key role for the Mavs that year.
Right now, Terry serves as the head coach of the Grand Rapid Golds in the NBA G League, where he is getting some much-needed experience. It appears that he's now on the brink of getting his big break, although, at this point, the Jazz job is anything but guaranteed for the 44-year-old.
