Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder will undergo hip replacement surgery on Tuesday, the team announced Monday.

The procedure was moved up from its original date in June.


Snyder, 55, and the Jazz concluded their season on Thursday when the Dallas Mavericks eliminated them in six games in a first-round Western Conference playoff series.

Snyder guided the Jazz to a 49-33 in 2021-22, his eighth season in Salt Lake City, but the team lost in the first round for the third time in the past four seasons.


Jazz general manager Justin Zanik made it clear during a session with reporters on Friday that he wants to retain Snyder.

“Quin Snyder is one of the best coaches in the NBA,” Zanik said. “There is no other partner I would rather have as a coach and as a leader of our players and as a partner in our front office than Quin Snyder.”

Even so, Snyder is the subject of rumors that he could depart the Jazz to take the same position with the Los Angeles Lakers.
