As per Adrian Wojnarowski

The Utah Jazz have offered Boston Celtics assistant Will Hardy the franchise's head coaching job and he's finalizing a deal to accept the job, sources tell ESPN.

Will Hardy and the Jazz are finalizing a five-year contract to make him the franchise's next coach, sources tell ESPN. Hardy, 34, will be the youngest active coach in the NBA.

Hardy came to Boston by way of the Spurs organization, a place where he learned under the legendary Gregg Popovich. He began as many future NBA coaches do in the video room as the team's video coordinator from 2013-2015 after finishing his playing career at Williams College.

Winning the title in the EAST and going to the final with Boston has given Hardy the credibility he finally needed to land the head coach position.
