The Utah Jazz and Quin Snyder have agreed to part ways after 8 years, the franchise announced on Sunday.
The two sides were in talks for a contract extension, however they never reached an agreement. As a result, Snyder decided to step down, even though he was under contract until 2024.

“Quin Snyder has embodied what Jazz basketball is for the last eight years. The tireless work ethic and attention to detail Quin displayed each day is a testament to the professional he is.
I have nothing but admiration for Quin and respect his decision,” said Utah owner Ryan Smith.
Snyder finished his eighth season as head coach of Utah, leading the team to six straight playoff appearances and advancing to the Western Conference semifinals in three of the six showings.
Over the past six seasons, Snyder led the Jazz to a 294-178 (.623) record, which was the third-best winning percentage in the NBA and best in the Western Conference during that span.
Snyder departs Utah following eight years with the franchise and a 372-264 (.585) regular season record. He leaves the Jazz as the second-winningest coach in franchise history. Utah will now search the market for his replacement.
