Quin Price Snyder (born October 30, 1966) is an American basketball coach who currently serves as the head coach of the NBA’s Utah Jazz (NBA).

Snyder attended Mercer Island High School in Mercer Island, Washington, and graduated in 1985. Snyder, a two-time state basketball player of the year, led his team to the state championship in 1985. Mercer Island was ranked No. 1 in USA Today’s high school polls throughout this time. Snyder was the first player from Washington to be named to the McDonald’s All-American team.

After the Team’s Handling of Frank Vogel’s Firing, Quin Snyder Is ‘less Interested’ in The Laker Job!!!

Following the sacking of Frank Vogel on Monday, the Lakers are looking for a new head coach, and one of their rumored targets is reportedly turning down the opportunity to join the famous team.

After seeing how the franchise handled the termination of its now-former head coach, Jazz coach Quin Snyder is “less interested” in leaving Utah for L.A., according to Broderick Turner of the L.A. Times.

According to Turner, Snyder is one of several possibilities the Lakers are considering, including Raptors coach Nick Nurse, 76ers coach Doc Rivers, and Michigan coach Juwan Howard.

Vogel’s firing was initially reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski shortly after the Lakers upset the Nuggets in the regular-season finale on Sunday night, before Vogel’s postgame press conference. The news sparked outrage on social media, and the situation swiftly deteriorated when Vogel told reporters, “I haven’t been told s—-” about his future.
The Lakers made the announcement less than 24 hours later.

The franchise then responded with a “Thank You, Coach” tweet that included a photo of Vogel clutching the Larry O’Brien Trophy following the Lakers’ NBA Finals victory over the Heat in the 2019-20 season.

Snyder, a former assistant with the Lakers from 2011 to 2012, is in his ninth season in Utah and has a one-year contract extension. The Jazz (49–33) finished fifth in the Western Conference in 2021-22 and are on their way to their sixth consecutive playoff berth, however, Snyder has yet to lead them to the conference finals.

Why Is It That So Many People Want Snyder to Quit the Utah Jazz?

Media outlets, in particular, appear to be scheming the disintegration of the team’s relationship with head coach Quin Snyder. Snyder was rumored to be in a position to succeed Gregg Popovich as head coach of the San Antonio Spurs.

He’s now rumored to be on his way to Hollywood.

Should the Head Coach of The Utah Jazz Leave for The Los Angeles Lakers?

CBS Sports seemed to agree. Snyder is rumored to be a potential replacement for current skipper Frank Vogel, according to their own Sam Quinn, through Marc Stein.

It’s reasonable to believe that Vogel is on his way out. The Lakers aren’t just out of the playoff picture at 31-41; they’re also at risk of missing the play-in round.

It raises the question of whether Snyder would abandon the Utah Jazz to join a trash fire.

The Utah Jazz stands tall over a possible new Snyder landing location.

The Jazz is, after all, 45-27. They don’t care if they miss the playoffs; all they care about is securing home-court advantage. Quin Snyder is already in a far better situation than he would be in if he were to arrive.

Maybe it doesn’t make a difference. The Lakers do have a certain LeBron James on their roster. That offers them an automatic shot at relevance, even at his advanced age.

The Lakers will very certainly try to move on from Russell Westbrook this offseason, barring any unexpected success (which would ensure Vogel’s job anyhow). They might succeed, putting them in a stronger position to compete. In addition, the Jazz may falter early in the postseason. Following that, Donovan Mitchell may demand a move. That’s a lot of “mays” in one sentence.
