Jay Triano served as the Phoenix Suns interim head coach for much of the season. He replaced Earl Watson after he was fired just three games into the 2017-18 campaign.

However, according to the Associated Press, Triano is no longer a candidate to be the Suns Head Coach moving forward. Phoenix will be moving onto their second phase of the interview process.

Former Charlotte Hornets Head Coach Steve Clifford is expected to be one of the front runners for the job. Clifford was let go by the Hornets after five seasons after the conclusion of their season in April.

Triano has said that he wanted the full-time job. However, the Canadian will have to look elsewhere for employment now.

He went 21-58 as the Suns interim head coach. He was appointed the team’s interim head coach on October 22nd, 2017.

Prior to his appointment, as the team’s interim head coach for 79 games, he spent two seasons as the team’s Associate Head Coach. He also spent four seasons as the Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach.

Triano spent two full seasons and 65 games of the 2008-09 season as the Toronto Raptors head coach. With the Raptors in 229 games, he went 87-142.

His best season with the team was a 40-42 campaign in 2009-10. In the 147 games, he went 47-100. He was the Raptors assistant coach for six seasons before being named the team’s interim head coach during the 2008-09 season.
