Utah Jazz old men Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors are up for contract extensions and coach Tyrone Corbin is entering the final year of his deal. You can imagine how thrilled they were Monday to discuss how those talks are going. “I’m completely fine with where I am” Corbin said. “I respect the organization’s side and my side in the negotiations.” Corbin was hired by the Jazz the day Jerry Sloan resigned in February 2011 and then had a year added to the tail end of his contract making it a three-year deal. He’s gone 87-89 since replacing the Hall of Famer. The Jazz have missed the playoffs in two of the past three postseasons and it would seemingly take an NBA miracle to return this year with the youth movement going on. Even knowing that Corbin said he’s not feeling pressure about his future employment in Utah. “Things will get worked out” Corbin said. “If we just go out and do our jobs everything else will take care of itself.” Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said Monday was the only time he’s going to address Corbin’s contract situation with the media this season. “The Miller family is known for their support for players of coaches of management. We’re going to stand by our record” Lindsey said. “I think as you guys have seen with Coach Sloan the internal promotion what we did last year and support of Ty and the staff with the Raja Bell situation coaches here are very well-supported. Beyond that the Miller family and the management team we’re not going to comment past that point.”
