Quinn Snyder in negotiations with Atlanta for head coach
Quinn Snyder, 57, is in negotiations with the Atlanta Hawks for the managerial position.
‘ESPN’ quoted a source on the 25th (Korean time) and said that the two sides are in the process of negotiating, and there is a possibility that it will be finalized within a few days.
Atlanta fired head coach Nate McMillan on the 22nd. Coach Joe Frunti has been appointed as acting coach, but instead of entrusting the acting manager for the rest of the season, he is looking for a new head coach.
Snyder is a proven manager. ESPN called him ‘one of the top managers currently on the market’.
He took over as head coach of the Utah Jazz in 2014 and recorded a 372-264 record over eight seasons.
He has won Manager of the Month four times and finished in the top three in two Manager of the Year polls.안전놀이터
He has made the playoffs for six consecutive seasons since the 2016-17 season. He was not satisfied with his grades. He went 21-30, reaching the conference semifinals on three occasions.
He has ties to Atlanta. During the 2013–14 season he coached under manager Mike Buden Holzer.
At that time, the team advanced to the playoffs despite not exceeding the 50% win rate with 38 wins and 44 losses, but was eliminated after losing to the Indiana Pacers in the first round.
ESPN reported that Snyder shared his philosophy by conducting conversations with decision makers such as general manager Landry Fields, assistant general manager Kyle Korver, and owner Tony Ressler.
They added that the Hawks will not simply give Snyder the manager’s job, but will give him the authority to evaluate personnel and become involved in reshaping the club’s culture and programming.
Atlanta is currently in 8th place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 29-30. He is ranked 14th in the league in offensive rating (114.6) and 20th in defensive rating (115.0).
