Jazz officials have had talks with Jones since it was announced that Corbin and his staff would not be returning next season. But sources also suggested Jones could be retained as an assistant should the Jazz opt to hire one of the other three candidates who appear to be on the team’s short list: Alvin Gentry, Quin Snyder and Adrian Griffin.

As previously reported, Adrian Griffin is on the short list of candidates still in consideration for the Utah Jazz’s head coach position. Not only that, but the Bulls assistant coach has impressed Jazz brass enough to merit a second interview, a source confirmed. Even while Quin Snyder has emerged as one of the lead candidates, a source told the Deseret News that Griffin has “a very, very good shot” of being named as Tyrone Corbin’s replacement. Deseret News

Now, Snyder has emerged as a leading candidate to become the next head coach of the Utah Jazz, according to multiple sources. Deseret News
