Jazz to contact John Stockton about coaching job


The Utah Jazz plan to contact former player John Stockton about their head-coaching job.

Stockton spent his entire 19-year NBA career with the Jazz becoming the leagues all-time leader in assists and steals.

According to ESPN, the Jazz will use the coming weeks to check in on Stockton’s interest:

“Sources told ESPN.com that Jazz officials intend to at least pose the question to the Hall of Fame guard about his willingness to move into coaching, while mindful of Stockton’s lack of previous coaching experience and the fact that he has long loathed the sort of spotlight associated with the job.”

While Stockton has no previous coaching experience, his history with the Jazz organization runs deep. Simply put few players epitomize the idea of team the way Stockton did during his NBA career.
