Snyder recalled the earlier years of his tenure as head coach and the Jazz nation’s support even through losing streaks.
“There’s some places you go and everybody gets frustrated. And fans get frustrated. But the way that our fans, you know, the way that manifests itself is in support,” Snyder said. “They try to lift you and that’s hard to do.”
