Anybody who needs to get into Columbia, S.C., should seek out Tyrone Corbin.

The Utah Jazz coach and South Carolina sports hero will receive a key to his hometown city this afternoon when he is honored by Columbia.

“We are proud to have this opportunity to celebrate Tyrone Corbin and all he has accomplished both on and off the court,” Columbia mayor Steve Benjamin said in a release put out by the Jazz. “He is one of Columbia’s brightest stars and an example to our children of what is possible if you work hard and dream big.”

“Congratulations to Ty,” Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor said. “This is a well-deserved honor for someone who has excelled in life as well as his chosen profession of basketball.”
