The last couple of years have not been kind to the Utah Jazz.
Since trading point guard Deron Williams to the Brooklyn (then New Jersey) Nets during the 2010-11 season, the Jazz have not won a playoff game.
Over the weekend, the Jazz decided to meet with current head coach Tyrone Corbin to make a decision regarding his future with the team.
On Monday, they came to that decision.
According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, the Jazz will not be bringing Corbin back next season.
The Jazz has elected not to offer head coach Tyrone Corbin a new contract. A search for a new head coach will begin immediately.

After the Jazz parted ways with Jerry Sloan, who had been the Jazz’s coach since 1988 and led the team to a 1,127-682 record and a 196-96 playoff record, in 2011, Corbin took over. The Jazz went 43-39 last season, but fell to 25-57 this season after losing Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. Corbin was 112-146 and 0-4 in the postseason (2012) with the Jazz. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports believes the Jazz may look to the Spurs for Corbin’s replacement.
One likely candidate for Jazz coaching job, sources tell Yahoo: Spurs assistant Jim Boylen. He has a strong history with GM Dennis Lindsey.

Lindsey worked with Boylen when he was the assistant general manager for the Spurs.
