Fire Tyrone Corbin

    1. Petition by

      John Smith


The Utah Jazz have been one of the most respected and successful organizations in the NBA for decades. However, head coach Tyrone Corbin and his staff have begun to cause significant damage to the Utah Jazz organization in several ways.

Mr. Corbin and his staff are damaging both the immediate & future success of the Utah Jazz. He has been head coach for nearly three years, and has demonstrated repeatedly that he does not have the necessary skills to be a successful NBA head coach. 

His player rotations have been severely detrimental to the development of young talent such as Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Alec Burks, and Gordon Hayward. (See: D.Favors, Utah @ Milwaukee, 3/4/13).  Additonally, Mr. Corbin may be decreasing the likelyhood that these players will choose to remain in Utah when they become restricted and/or unrestricted free agents. Valuable and hard-working players such as DeMarre Carroll have left the Jazz organization, (arguably) primarily because of Mr. Corbin's ineptitude as head coach. Former Jazz players, including Raja Bell and C.J. Miles, have complained about Mr. Corbin's lack of coach-player communication. 

Only a year after narrowly qualifying for the playoffs in a lockout-shortened season (and getting swept in an embarassing fashion), the Jazz failed to qualify in 2013. This franchise is only a few years removed from having one of the longest playoff appearance streaks in the nation, but have failed to show any improvement from the previous season. Jazz fan loyalty & enthusiasm is decreasing and will continue to decrease as long as Mr. Corbin is head coach; season ticket sales and attendance will almost certainly follow suit. Last season's consistent mediocrity speaks loudly of squandered talent and opportunities, and has certainly not warranted future contracts or contract extensions for Mr. Corbin. 

This season (2013-14), the Jazz are on pace to be the worst team in NBA history and have largely failed to remain competitive in most games despite having 9 players drafted 13th or higher in the NBA draft.

Mr. Corbin has also shown little or no improvement as head coach. His job performance over the past few years has been inadequate & worthy of immediate termination as head coach of the Utah Jazz. Failure to recognize and/or fix mistakes is one of Mr. Corbin's greatest faults as a head coach. We can only hope that you, Utah Jazz managment, do not have the same fatal flaw.

Fire Tyrone Corbin.

      Tyrone Corbin is incapable of managing the jazz. He is a poor leader and makes idiotic substitutions. Get rid of Harpring too... the worst at his job in the country. The jazz are losing their fan base.

      I know this petition is old, but if anything the situation has only got worse. The fact this has been out here for so long shows what a bad job Corbin is doing. We need to be playing the young guys, not M Williams and Jefferson. And they need to be being coached by someone who knows what he's doing. That's not Corbin!

      Worst coach in history! The lineups he has late in games are terrible and the plays he draws up out of time outs are terrible. Its bad. Get a new coach!
