Jazz pres. Rigby: Coaching search to involve 'much more than 20' candidates.

"It's going to be a while."

That's Jazz president Randy Rigby's timeline for finding the team's next head coach. In an interview Wednesday on 1280 The Zone, Rigby said the search will be an "exhaustive" process that will include "much more than 20" candidates.

"There's a lot of different candidates," Rigby said. "You can look at existing coaches that have NBA experience. You can look at assistant coaches in the NBA. You can look at iconic players that would maybe be a potential. You can look at also international coaches that could fit into that mold. I think we're going to be exhaustive and make sure we look at all the different areas so no stone is unturned in all the categories."

Rigby also said the team could look at college coaches.

Early reports have said that former University of Utah coach Jim Boylen, now the lead assistant with the San Antonio Spurs, is atop general manager Dennis Lindsey's list. That may be so, but Lindsey will not make any decision alone.

"I hear many people say this is Dennis Lindsey's decision. No it's not," Rigby said. "Dennis is a key player and helps formulate the strategy. But it will be an inclusive process. … Everyone has a vote and a say and we're all of one mind when we come out of the room."
