Monson: Scott Layden once ruled the Jazz, now he serves them

Team’s former GM is now happy to be one of its assistant coaches.

And he insists he couldn’t be happier. Asked if he wants to be a head coach, or replace O’Connor if he ever retires, Layden shakes his head and says:

"I’m indebted to coach Sloan for bringing me back and to coach Ty for retaining me. That’s what I’m focused on, doing the best job I can in the job I have. I’ve been in the NBA for 30 years. How lucky is that? I’m perfectly content with being coach Ty’s assistant. I don’t know what’s ahead, but I hope the Jazz keep me for another 25 years. I feel honored to do what I do and fortunate to be able to do it."
