Quin Snyder agrees to terms with Jazz to become coach

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

Sportando first reported and CBSSports.com confirms that Atlanta Hawks assistant and former Missouri head coach Quin Snyder has agreed to a three-year deal to become the coach of the Utah Jazz. The Jazz announced the move Friday afternoon.

Snyder left Missouri after a tumultuous turn that saw NCAA investigations result in his departure. Snyder coached the Spurs' D-League affiliate Austin Toros, working under R.C. Buford and Gregg Popovich, who have been supporters of Snyder's career. Snyder grew a reputation in Austin for development and passion. He worked in Philadelphia as an assistant with Doug Collins, for the Lakers under Mike Brown in his first season, and spent a year with CSKA Moscow before returning last season to work under Mike Budenholzer in Atlanta.

Snyder gets to work with a great young point guard in Trey Burke, a talented big man in Derrick Favors, and will have a top five draft pick this month. It's a young roster that's tailor-made for a first-time head coach with assistant credentials. Jazz GM Dennis Lindsay was familiar with Snyder from his time in Austin.
