The Jazz front office is searching for a new coach after declining to offer Tyrone Corbin a new contract. Corbin's stint with the Jazz ends with a 112-146 record after he became the team's head coach on February 10, 2011. He proceeded Jerry Sloan, who resigned following a long tenure with the team.

"Ty's a man of dignity, class, integrity and we'll do nothing now in this press conference or moving forward that will disparage him or his coaches in any way," Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said. "Today, we're grateful for a period that they saw us through and following Coach Sloan in many ways ... is like following John Wooden."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Jim Boylen is the current favorite to become the next coach of the Jazz at 2/1, while Ettore Messina has the next-best odds at 4/1. Mike Longabardi, Andy Greer, Brad Jones and Jeff Van Gundy are all 11/2, respectively. The two long-shots are Lionel Hollins at 6/1 and Stan Van Gundy at 15/2.

Boylen is currently an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs and the former head coach of the University of Utah. He had coached the program in 2007 to 2011 before being fired on March 12, 2011. The Utah job was his first head-coaching position after spending over a decade as an assistant at both the NBA and NCAA levels.
