Over the years, Quin Snyder has played for and worked with Mike Krzyzewski. The 47-year-old became a national coaching star while guiding the Missouri Tigers from 1999-2006. He's been an NBA assistant on multiple occasions, including with the Atlanta Hawks most recently.

By the way, he's also worked with Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey.

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

"It's very plausible," one source told the Deseret News when speaking of Snyder possibly being hired by the Jazz.

Another source said Snyder is "very high on a short list" of Jazz coaching candidates.

Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin and longtime NBA coach Alvin Gentry, who've also been interviewed by Jazz brass, remain on a whittled-down list of potential replacements for Tyrone Corbin. It's believed Spurs assistant Jim Boylen continues to be a possibility for the position as well.

But Snyder, sources say, has increasingly captured the interest of the Jazz front office to become the man who leads the franchise through the next steps of this rebuilding process with the goal of becoming a "championship-caliber" organization.
