The Utah Jazz finished the regular season just two wins away from an NBA playoff berth, and have been slowly improving over the past couple of seasons.
“With this contract extension, we are declaring our confidence in Coach Snyder's ability to continue to develop the Utah Jazz into a championship team,” team owner Gail Miller said in a statement. “The Miller family recognizes the significant progress made under his leadership and we are excited about the direction we are headed.”
The Jazz were 25-57 under Tyrone Corbin in the 2013-14 season before they proceeded to hire Quin Snyder, who helped Utah to a 38-44 record in 2014-15 and a 40-42 record in 2015-16, finishing just two wins away from an NBA playoff spot.
Snyder was entering the third year of his three-year deal, but the Jazz wanted to secure him for the next couple of years so he wouldn't worry about his future with the team in the midst of the regular season. Although terms of the deal haven't been confirmed yet, Snyder will be the coach of the Jazz for the forseeable future.
