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 Missouri.

ANALYSIS: 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.
