SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz just saw one long-time member of the family leave, but they're welcoming an even bigger one back to the fold. Karl Malone has accepted a job to help coach the Jazz big men, the Hall of Fame power forward announced on the team's radio station during an interview with CEO Greg Miller. "I think your involvement with our bigs is going to help us win more ball games," Miller said. It is unknown how much time Malone will spend as a coach on Tyrone Corbin's staff, but he expressed excitement about working with the Jazz young bigs, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter, beginning this offseason. "We haven't discussed nothing other than that I'll be coaching the bigs," Malone said, adding that he's still working out a scheduled with Corbin on how to approach his new gig.
