Utes hire Nets assistant Krystkowiak as new coach

SALT LAKE CITY | The University of Utah hired Nets assistant Larry Krystkowiak as their coach Sunday, picking him to lead the Utes into the Pacific 12 Conference.

The move came three weeks after athletic director Chris Hill fired Jim Boylen following consecutive losing seasons. Krystkowiak will be introduced at a news conference Monday.

The 46-year-old Krystkowiak has been an assistant with New Jersey the past eight months. He played for the Jazz in 1992-93 as part of nine injury-plagued NBA seasons.
