The Utah Jazz have interviewed at least 15 candidates for their head coach opening. They now seem to be circling Boston Celtics assistant coach Will Hardy as the favorite for next Jazz coach.

Hardy joined Boston this past season after more than a decade with the San Antonio Spurs. He started in the Spurs video room before eventually being elevated to an assistant role under Gregg Popovich.

Utah is looking for a new coach after Quin Snyder stepped down following the season. Snyder had been the Jazz head coach for eight season from 2014 to 2022.
