Letter: Cut Jazz players pay instead of firing coach
First Published Apr 22 2014 04:33 pm • Last Updated Apr 22 2014 04:33 pm

I’m not a big basketball fan. But I have worked in the corporate sector. On a new job the rookies start at the bottom of the money ladder and prove their worth.

It seems to me that the answer to a winning team is not to remove the coach but to start the rookies at a lower base fare and make them work for any additional raises. These young men are too highly paid and have no real experience. Therefore, they have nothing to lose if they botch a game and don’t win.

Corbin is not the problem. He is a good coach with a zeal to bring the Jazz out of the slump. The "powers that be" keep changing the good players for the untried players that will get their "big bucks" whether they win or not.

Hey, Jazz officials, take a closer look, change the rules, back up whomever you deem to hire (Corbin would be a good choice) and make the rookies earn their salary. Quit enabling them to lose.

Give those of us who are fence watchers something to get excited about.
