Well when Quin was hired he around 47, which is not young but not old either.

To relate that to popular rumored candidates.

Alex Jensen is 46 (oh man we're born the same year)
Johnnie Bryan is 36
Griffin is 47

Not that he was a candidate but Atkinson is 55

Andy Larsen on ESPN 700 said he would probably put Will Hardy and Kevin Young right up there with Johnnie Bryant in terms of front runners at this point...both guys have really impressed in their interviews. Said he's hearing the Jazz want to go young and don't want a retread. Said they want someone that connects to the players, also said the Jazz were pleased with the player development during Quins first 5 years and they've been disappointed with it the last 3 seasons, and they'd like that to improve under the next head coach.

FWIW the JazzLeaks twitter page said that Kevin Young was a candidate to watch a couple weeks ago.

That page is *** they also said we’re interviewing D’Antoni.
Seems to hit on things and miss on things. Predicted UFC event in SLC, the jersey launch date 2 weeks before anyone else, and the Kevin Young news. But also said we would interview D'Antoni, wanted to trade back into the 1st, etc.

I do think it's down to Young, Hardy, and Bryant though.

Signing a young, first-time coach may mean that Ainge wants to be the senior voice in the organization and not be challenged. It could also mean the Jazz want someone who is hungry and who will work extra hard to prove himself. Or, both.
