Report: Longtime Pac-12 head coach parting ways with current school
It looks like there will be a head coaching vacancy in the Pac-12 this offseason.
Multiple reports are indicating Tuesday evening that head coach Larry Krystkowiak and Utah are parting ways. Gary Parrish with CBS Sports was among those to report the parting while Josh Newman with the Salt Lake Tribune reported it will be a resignation by Krystkowiak and is not a firing.

Krystkowiak had been coaching the Utes since 2011-12, compiling a 183-139 overall record with the team. He is fourth on Utah’s all-time coaching list in wins.
Utah made two NCAA Tournament appearances under Krystkowiak but had not been back to March Madness since back-to-back bids in 2015 and 2016. Those teams were led by future NBA players in Delon Wright, Jakob Poeltl, and Kyle Kuzma.
It will be interesting to see what other schools and coaches decide to make moves before the conclusion of the NCAA Tournament. Minnesota and Indiana are among B1G teams to make moves and will continue searching for their next head coaches.
