The Utah Jazz did not renew head coach Tyrone Corbin's contract after a dismal 25-57 season.

The Utah Jazz are not renewing head coach Tyrone Corbin's contract. 

The Jazz issued a press release regarding the matter on their official website on April 21: 

"The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has elected not to offer head coach Tyrone Corbin a new contract. As a result, a search for a new head coach will begin immediately.

"'I would like to thank Ty and his staff for all of their hard work, dedication and professionalism over the last three-plus seasons. This has not been an easy decision, but after a thorough review process, we as an organization feel that this is the best decision for our franchise moving forward."

 Lindsey also spoke with The Associated Press (via Yahoo! Sports), lauding Corbin's character and also saying the team already has a list of potential replacements, but did not specify who they are. 

"Ty's a man of dignity, class, integrity and we'll do nothing now in this press conference or moving forward that will disparage him or his coaches in any way. Today, we're grateful for a period that they saw us through and following Coach Sloan in many ways...is like following John Wooden. 

"We want to have a full platter in front of us. We don't want to define the search in any way. We want to take a step back and look at some internal crtieria but we literally have not spent one minute on that because the decision on Ty and his staff was at the forefront.

"Again, that didn't get decided until a little before 11 today."  

On the issue of Corbin working with the Jazz in some capacity, Lindsey told The Associated Press the door remains open. 

"And I'll say this, as well: I think Ty is...going to be a better coach or is potentially going to be a better head coach for his experience and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see him land on his feet to be a head coach and do very well going forward.

"If that doesn't happen and he were to want to come back in some fashion, I don't think there's anybody within the organization that would prevent that." 

For his part, Corbin was realistic about his impending fate, per KSL.com's Josh Furlong in his April 17 report.  

"Anything can happen in this league. I've been in it a long time. You want to have a fair shake. You want the best opportunity you can have to win. We just, the organization just decided to go in a different direction from the guys we had the year before. 

"I knew it would be difficult from the beginning. in now way when you change the roster like we changed is it good for the coaching staff, especially in the last year of the contract. It brings a lot of questions in everything you do with young guys." 

Corbin played for the Jazz from 1991-94. He first took the bench as an assistant under head coach Jerry Sloan from 2004-11. He became Jazz interim coach on Feb. 10, 2011 after Sloan resigned. Corbin wound up with an 8-20 record the rest of the way, per Furlong.

He would then guide Utah to a 36-30 mark duing the 2011-12 lockout-shortened season but the team got swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round. After a respectable 43-39 finish the following season, the Jazz could only muster 25 wins in 2013-14 -- the worst record in the Western Conference. 

His overall head coaching record in the NBA is 112-146 (.434), per The Associated Press
