The Utah Jazz have requested longtime Miami Heat assistant coach Chris Quinn to interview for their head coaching job, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Quinn has spent the last eight years as a Heat assistant after spending one with Northwestern in 2013-14. He’s the longest tenured assistant on Erik Spoelstra’s staff.
