New Assistant Coach Alex Jensen


It looks like Utah filled its assistant coach position with one NBAD-League Coach of the Year Alex Jensen, a former Ute who played alongside Andre Miller and Michael Doleac in the NCAA championship game against Kentucky. We know how that turned out, and we know how Andre Miller turned out, and I don't remember Alex Jensen even though I watched that game. I was young though.

You can read all about Alex Jensen's biography here on Wikipedia or wherever, but I think this was a good move by the front office. They're hiring a guy who had some success at the collegiate and professional level (over seas) and now in the NBADL, so he seems like a pretty promising up-and-coming coach who knows how to coach young players. Not only must he have good communication and motivation skills, but he's been able to get players to play above their current level, which is a strong sign of a great coach. That's kind of here-say though, so let's wait and see what we get. I like the turnover though that Dennis Lindsey is creating, even if Raul Neto and Uncle Jamaal TInsley aren't back the season, and even if Chris Roberts isn't signed even though he obviously should be our 13th player, I have faith that Dennis Lindsey knows exactly what he is doing, and will only surprise fans and the league of how quickly he can get this team to move up the ranks. I would've like Brad Stevens replacing Ty Corbin, but I'll be content with the Jensen addition. I think it's a step in the right direction for coaching a young developing new team.
