Utah Jazz assistant coach Brad Jones has emerged as a candidate in their search for a head coach, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News. Jones has a long history with the franchise:

During the past two years, Jones, the nephew of Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan and his late wife, Bobbye, has worked as a full-time assistant on Tyrone Corbin's staff and as the player development director.

Jones joined Utah's organization after coaching the Austin Toros in the D-League for two years, including the 2012 championship season. He had a working relationship in Texas with Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey, who was the Spurs' assistant general manager at the time.
