The Jazz have extended head coach Tyrone Corbin's contract an additional year, exercising their 2013/14 option on his contract, the team announced today in a press release. The move will keep Corbin under contract through the next two seasons.
"Greg Miller, Randy Rigby and Kevin O’Connor made an excellent choice when they selected Tyrone Corbin to lead this team. I have been very impressed with Ty’s leadership skills, as well as his openness and collaborative nature," said Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey in a statement. "He inherited a young team under difficult circumstances and did a remarkable job last season of developing our players and advancing the team to the playoffs. He has shown poise, steadiness and an overall passion for the franchise’s well-being that I am confident will serve the Jazz well moving forward"
Although Corbin had occasional issues with players such as Raja Bell and C.J. Miles last season, he led Utah to a solid showing on the court. The Jazz had a 36-30 record and earned a No. 8 seed in the Western Conference in Corbin's first full year as the team's head coach.
