Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder is soon to be named as the new coach of the Utah Jazz, according to sources close to the process.

Sources on Friday confirmed a Sportando.com report that Snyder is poised to receive a three-year deal from the Jazz to replace Tyrone Corbin.

Snyder has a close relationship with Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey from their time together in San Antonio and will be a first-time NBA head coach after coaching Missouri at the college level.
