Frank Vogel is set to join the race for the new head coach of the Utah Jazz, following the departure of Quin Snyder.
This is what Marc Berman of the New York Post reports, even though Terry Stotts remains the frontrunner to replace Snyder.
“According to sources, former Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is the early favorite and recently fired Lakers coach Frank Vogel also could command a look. Reportedly, Celtics assistant Will Hardy will get an interview, too,” Berman writes.

Aside from Stotts and Vogel, another six coaches have already emerged as candidates for the head coaching job.
Knicks assistant Johnnie Bryant, Jazz assistant Alex Jensen, Celtics assistant Will Hardy, Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin, Bucks assistant Charles Lee and Suns assistant Kevin Young are in the list as well.
For his part, Frank Vogel spent three years with the Los Angeles Lakers, winning the 2020 NBA championship. He parted with the franchise in mid-April, following a disappointing end to the season (11th place).
