Demps, Dooling join Jazz coaching staff
Former New Orleans Pelicans general manager
Dell Demps has agreed to join the Utah Jazz as an assistant coach,
reuniting with Quin Snyder, sources tell ESPN. The Jazz are also
hiring former NBA guard Keyon Dooling in a player development role,
sources tell ESPN. Dooling played parts of 13 years in the NBA, and
collegiately for Quin Snyder at the University of
After serving as the general
manager in New Orleans for nine years, Demps decided to pursue
something different and transition into coaching. Demps and Jazz
head coach Quin Snyder have a great relationship and worked with
each other from 2007-2010 with the Spurs G League team. Demps had
been spending time at Jazz practices previously and given his
history with Synder it should not come as too much of a surprise
that the two sides got a deal done.
Keyon Dooling will also join the Jazz coaching staff in what will be his first coaching role.
