The depth of the Boston Celtics alumni pool in the thick of the interview process to be the next head coach of the Utah Jazz just got longer according to recent reporting from ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski. Woj reports that former Boston assistant coach and current Detroit Pistons assistant Jerome Allen will be permitted by his current team to interview for the job recently vacated by 2021-22 Jazz head coach Quin Snyder.

Allen joins current Celtics assistants Will Hardy and Joe Mazzulla and onetime Boston shooting guard (and current G League coach for the Rapid City Gold) Jason Terry are also among Boston alumni who could well end up at the helm of the Jazz next season.

That the front office is under the guidance of former Boston President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge as the team seeks to shake things up significantly after stalling out as a not-quite contending team in recent seasons is likely part of the reason for such a notable Celtics connection to Utah’s hiring process.

But all of the alumni currently under consideration have enviable resumes documenting excellent bodies of respective work, and any of the foursome with ties to Boston would make a solid hire to lead Utah moving forward.
