Sloan, who has been the head coach in Utah since before some of you were born (1988) is quitting.
KSL has learned that Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and assistant coach Phil Johnson will resign at a press conference later Thursday.
More details will be posted as they become available.
The news comes after the Jazz lost to Chicago in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, where former Jazz players Kyle Korver and Ronnie Brewer helped the Bulls escape Utah with a 91-86 win.
After the game, Sloan didn't come out of his office for a postgame interview until about a half-hour after his team lost for the 10th time in 14 games.
Sloan has a lifetime regular season record of 1221-803 and a 31-23 record this year. His playoff record, though is 98-104. And as much as I respect the guy for his years of service and for having the third-most wins as a head coach… you can't write his biography without mentioning he hasn't won an NBA title.
It will be interesting to see why he quit. He's certainly one of the biggest names in the game. He even just signed a one-year extension… so something is behind this.
By the way… Frank Layden was the coach of the Jazz before Jerry Sloan. He's a total goofball who graduated to making videos like "Dazzling Dunks & Basketball Bloopers". Why don't they make those blooper tapes anymore? What was I saying? Oh yeah.. Good luck Jerry.
