MORGANTOWN, W.Va – In the midst of Boston’s NBA Finals run, two of its assistant coaches have made the list of potential candidates for a head coaching job in the league. One of those assistants is former Mountaineer Joe Mazzulla.

After eight seasons with the Jazz, Quin Snyder resigned from his position on Sunday.

He has two years of head coaching experience in the collegiate ranks. He compiled a 43-17 record over two seasons as the leader of the Fairmont State University Falcons from
