Default How do you like Tyrone Corbin as a coach?

Corbin replaced Jerry Sloan on Feb. 10, 2011, after the Hall of Fame coach and lead assistant Phil Johnson abruptly resigned after 23 years on the job. Amid the turmoil, which included the trade of All-Star point guard Deron Williams two weeks after Sloan’s resignation, Corbin had little chance to succeed.

"It’s where we were as a franchise," he said. "Everybody has to go through changes at some point. This is a great organization that likes to stay where they are. They’ve had great success doing that. [But] time always catches up with you at some point and you have to make changes."

Utah won only eight of its final 28 games under Corbin and missed the playoffs for the first time in five years.
