News of Quin Snyder stepping down as head coach of the Utah Jazz earlier this month didn’t really surprise former Jazz player and BYU basketball star Andy Toolson.

“It seemed like it had been brewing for a month or so, that there was some questions as to whether he would return or not,” Toolson said. “It takes a lot emotionally, and if it’s not the right situation, he must have felt that and felt it was time to move on.”

Toolson, who lives in Highland these days, still follows the Jazz and Brigham Young University basketball while carrying on with his business career and serving as a bishop for his congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“It’s busy,” he says, “I don’t have a lot of free time, but it’s good. I enjoy it and we feel blessed.”

Toolson is a partner in a retirement planning firm and owner of a liquidation grocery and general merchandise business. His retirement planning firm has recently been offering people a complimentary book called “The Power of Zero” to help them get to a 0% tax bracket.

When he’s not at work or at the local Latter-day Saint meetinghouse, he enjoys spending time with family or rebounding basketballs as his sons practice shooting. He has one son, Drew Toolson, who will be a sophomore at Long Peak High next year and an older son, Tanner Toolson, who just returned from a mission in Jacksonville, Florida, and is committed to play for BYU.
