Jazz release Corbin

The Utah Jazz announced Monday that the team has elected not to offer head coach Tyrone Corbin a new contract. As a result, a search for a new head coach will begin immediately. Corbin compiled a 112-146 (.434) record with the Jazz in four seasons, guiding the team to a winning record in two of his three full seasons and a playoff appearance in 2012. The Jazz finished the 2013-14 season with a 25-57 (.305) record. Corbin became the seventh head coach in Jazz history and only the fourth since the franchise’s relocation to Utah in 1979, when he was elevated to head coach on Feb. 10, 2011 following the resignation of Jerry Sloan. Prior to his promotion, Corbin served as an assistant coach for the Jazz under Sloan from 2004-2011. He also played for nine teams during a 16-year NBA career (1985-2001), including three seasons with the Jazz from 1991-94.

Historic race car

Miller Motorsports Park officials announced Monday the acquisition of Ford GT40 No. P-104, the second-oldest existing Ford GT40. The car is the latest addition to the Larry H. Miller Total Performance Museum. Ford GT40 No. P-104 was built in June 1964. It was the fourth GT40 to be constructed, and the first to use thin-wall chassis tubing to save weight. Just days after construction was complete it made its racing debut in the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it qualified second but failed to finish after an engine fire damaged the car. The highlight of the car’s career was in the 1965 Daytona Continental, the 2000km predecessor to the 24 Hours of Daytona, where it qualified and finished third. It also raced at Nassau, Sebring, Monza and the Nurburgring. Among the drivers who drove P-104 were Jo Schlesser, Dickie Attwood, Bruce McLaren, Bob Bondurant, Richie Ginther and Phil Hill. With the addition of P-104, the Larry H. Miller Total Performance Museum now owns the top three finishing cars from the 1965 Daytona Continental (P-103, CSX-2299 and P-104). The purchase of GT40 P-104 took place at the Mecum Auto Auction in Houston on April 12.

Learn to hunt turkeys

Hunters can learn how to hunt wild turkeys at free seminars in Logan and Salt Lake City. At the seminars, hunters learn how to set up for and call turkeys. They also will learn the type of equipment they need and how to hunt turkeys safely. Each seminar begins at 6 p.m. The first seminar will be held Thursday at the Cache Valley Public Shooting Range, 2851 W. 200 North in Logan. The second seminar will be held April 30 at the Lee Kay Public Shooting Range, 6000 W. 2100 South in Salt Lake City. Dean Mitchell, an avid turkey hunter and Conservation Outreach Section chief for the Division of Wildlife Resources, said attending a seminar is the perfect way to prepare for Utah’s upcoming general statewide turkey hunt.  Members of the Utah chapter of The National Wild Turkey Federation will teach the seminars. David Worwood, Utah NWTF chapter president, said he and members of his chapter are excited to participate. The hunt begins April 28. Permits for the hunt are not limited in number, so you’ll have no problem getting one. For more information about the seminars, email Worwood at dave@waterwellservice.com.
