NBA Rumors: Utah Jazz given permission to talk to Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin

As the Utah Jazz continue to search for their new head coach, they have been given permission to discuss the open position with Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin, according to a report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Griffin has been on the Bulls’ staff with Tom Thibodeau since the 2010 season and has been seen as someone that has been head coaching material for a while now, the right opportunity has just not popped up yet. Prior to last season, he did interview with the Sixers and Pistons, but he was ultimately passed up; and as we know now, maybe a bad move on the Pistons’ part as they have already parted ways with Mo Cheeks.

In addition to the Jazz opening, Griffin has also been named as a possible candidate for the Cavaliers’ opening after they recently fired Mike Brown, so that chance that everyone believes Griffin deserves could be coming sooner rather than later.
