The Utah Jazz made today the NBA’s Black Monday. The Jazz announced in a statement on Twitter today.
Ty Corbin’s contract expired at the end of this season with no renewal in place.
Corbin became Jazz head coach after previous coach Jerry Sloan retired during the Deron Williams saga. Corbin was the third coach in a row to be hired after spending time within the organisation, following Sloan and Frank Layden.
Despite a terribly difficult season spent first waiting for Trey Burke to make his debut while being saddled with a disappointing roster, Corbin remained a rock in the storm. Not once did he offer complaint or openly criticise the team or it’s direction.
Corbin compiled a 112-146 (43.4 percent) record during just over three seasons in Utah.
The Jazz announced the move on Twitter, also confirming that a search for a new coach will begin immediately.
