We bring you some news that generate surprise in the NBA world in the midst of the 2022 Finals. Quin Snyder made the decision to leave his position as head coach of the Utah Jazz after 8 seasons, according to a report by journalist Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Despite having a good relationship with the team’s management, the 55-year-old coach chooses to finish a rather successful cycle, despite the fact that he has never been able to reach the series that determines the NBA champion.
At the moment, the main reason that caused Snyder’s departure is unknown, although this could open the door for a definitive reconstruction to begin in a team that in recent seasons featured Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell as main figures.
A number of potential candidates will emerge in the coming days to fill the vacant coaching job in a team that just ended the regular season of the 2021/22 season in fifth place in the Western Conference, with 49 wins and 33 losses.
What’s Quin Snyder’s record as an NBA coach?
After 8 NBA coaching seasons (all with the Jazz), Snyder posts an impressive record of 636 wins and 372 losses, for an impressive 58.5% winning percentage.
We’re talking about a man who has positioned the Utah Jazz at the top of the Western Conference in recent years, an accomplishment that demonstrates his ability as a basketball strategist.
Rudy Gobert’s numbers in the 2021/22 NBA season
The French center is regarded as one of the finest in the world at his position, thanks in large part to his defensive tenacity in the paint.
Gobert played 66 games in the regular round of the 2021/22 NBA. He ended up averaging 15.6 points per game, 2.1 blocks and 14.7 rebounds, shooting 71.3% from the field. In terms of individual accomplishments in the best league in the world, he has been selected to the All Star Game three times and has been named to the All Defensive team six times.
