The Utah Jazz coaching search could be nearing the home stretch, with at least a few candidates separating themselves from the pack, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. Multiple sources tell The Tribune that Chicago Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin will interview a second time for Utah’s head coaching vacancy. The interview is scheduled to take place some time in the next week. Griffin originally interviewed two weeks ago. And while is drawing significant interest from the Jazz, he also is a candidate for the Cleveland Cavaliers coaching vacancy and has interviewed there as well. Additionally, Griffin is apparently on the radar of the New York Knicks, who were forced to hit the reset button on their search after unexpectedly losing Steve Kerr to the Golden State Warriors. A former NBA player, Griffin is seeking his first head coaching position. But he has been an assistant coach under Tom Thibodeau in Chicago and has been assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks. And there is apparently another candidate drawing high interest from the Jazz. The Tribune has confirmed that Atlanta Hawks assistant Quin Snyder has interviewed once with Utah, and like Griffin, has been called back for a second interview.
