Patrick Beilein is leaving West Virginia Wesleyan to take a job on coach Quin Snyder's staff with the Utah Jazz, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Beilein, the son of Michigan coach John Beilein, will work under Snyder in a player development and video coordinator role.

Snyder plans to utilize Beilein's strengths as a shooting instructor with a young, developing roster.

Beilein, 29, turned a losing Division II program at West Virginia Wesleyan into a 20-game winner in his third season in 2013-14. Before his first head coaching job, Beilein had been a graduate assistant at Michigan and had staff jobs at Bradley and Dartmouth.

Patrick Beilein played for his father at West Virginia University, where he was a 1,000-point career scorer and was part of Sweet 16 and Elite Eight teams.
