Quin Snyder has had a long and remarkable career in basketball. He started at Duke and was mentored by Coach K, married Larry Brown’s daughter and certainly learned from him, then took the head job at Mizzou where he crashed and burned.

After that he charted an unlikely comeback through the D-League where he got to learn from one of the best, current national team coach Gregg Popovich.

And now he’s coaching the Utah Jazz like nobody’s business.

Here are some comments from Coach K about his former player and assistant along with some from various other people including Kobe Bryant.
