Sources close to the Utah Jazz have claimed that the franchise are close to naming Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder as their new coach.
It is believed that Snyder will receive a three-year deal with the Jazz and will replace Tyrone Corbin.
Corbin left the Jazz earlier this off-season after leading Utah to a disappointing 25-57 record and saw them miss out on post-season basketball once again.
Snyder will become a first-time NBA head coach after having assisted at many franchises.
The speculation stems from the belief that Snyder has a close relationship with the Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey from their time together in San Antonio.
European coaching legend Ettore Messina is rumoured to be Snyder's target for an assistant coach after the two worked together at European powerhouse CSKA Moscow.
Snyder is believed to have beaten Los Angeles Clippers assistant Alvin Gentry and Chicago Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin to the role.
