Jazz's Corbin still searching for new coaching assistants

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin is still going through the initial stage of searching for new assistants to add to his staff.

Utah has been limited to just three coaches since Jerry Sloan and Phil Johnson resigned Feb. 10 — a low number in the modern NBA. Corbin was promoted to head coach the same day that Sloan and Johnson stepped down, while former shooting consultant Jeff Hornacek became a full-time assistant Feb. 14. Longtime assistant Scott Layden rounds out the Jazz's small staff. However, no one has officially replaced Johnson.

Corbin acknowledged at the end of the 2010-11 season that he has names in mind for new assistants, and hinted that he would like to use a larger staff than Sloan employed. But with the NBA playoffs ongoing and the end of the Collective Bargaining Agreement less than two months away — an event that many predict will initiate a prolonged lockout — Utah is not in a rush to fill the void.

Hornacek's contract expires June 30, coinciding with the end of the current CBA. He is expected to remain as a full-time assistant next season, though. Layden is also expected to return, marking his seventh season with the Jazz.
