“Utah is my home. My family is here,” Rowe . “When the Jazz reached out to me, when [chief marketing officer Bart Sharp] emailed me, he said this is random but asked if I would be interested in the role. I was shocked. I’ve covered basketball for 30 years and now I get to stay involved with a team I grew up with.”
