Lately, TNT analyst and former NBA star Steve Kerr is becoming the most sought after person in the NBA as a potential head coach, even though he’s never actually held the position with anyone in the league. Now ESPN’s Marc Stein is reporting that there is now another organization that’s set to get into the running to give him his first coaching gig, and it’s the Utah Jazz.
Latest on Steve Kerr front: Utah Jazz, I’m told, have also tried to wedge their way into the race for the TNT analyst alongside NYK and GSW

The Knicks first started the mania around Kerr when his old head coach, Phil Jackson, took over as president of basketball operations for New York. Then, earlier on Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors fired their head coach, Mark Jackson, after three seasons and threw their names into the hat.
As for the Jazz now, they’re in the hunt for a new head coach after firing Tyrone Corbin back in April after he went 112-146 since taking over for the legendary Jerry Sloan in the 2010-11 season.
At this point, the ball seems to be completely in Kerr’s court going forward as to where he will land his next job.
