Hawks GM Landry Fields mentioned Snyder as a candidate during a press conference to address the team’s dismissal of former coach Nate McMillan.

Snyder, 56, coached the Jazz from 2014-22, compiling a 372-264 record and becoming a player favorite along the way. He stepped down at the end of last season, citing a need for a break. Speculation, however, suggested that he would eventually return to coaching.

The Hawks and Snyder share a mutual interest, per Charania.

Prior to coaching the Jazz, Snyder was spent one season as an assistant with the Hawks (2013-14). He also spent time as an assistant with the Lakers, 76ers and Clippers, and is a former head coach in the G League and at the University of Missouri.
