Jazz Jazz coach Jerry Sloan to resign

wow. Great coaching career.

Quote:
Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan will announce his resignation at a news conference later today, according to a report posted on the Deseret News website. Assistant coach Phil Johnson will also leave the team, the report says.

The news follows a strange scene after the Jazz lost, 91-86, at home to the Chicago Bulls last night. Before speaking with the media immediately after the game as he normally would, Sloan met with GM Kevin O’Connor behind closed doors for more than 30 minutes, The Salt Lake Tribune reported. The Jazz coach then hastily answered questions and said he’d prefer to concentrate on game-related queries only.

Sloan, who told NBA.com on Monday that he signed a one-year extension with the team, is the league’s longest-tenured coach. He took over the Jazz in 1988, and Utah went 1127-682 during his tenure.

Sloan's 1,221 career wins (he also coached the Bulls for about two-and-a-half seasons) rank him third on the all-time list.

Claudius will probably provide some more insight, but if everything i've read proves to be true, than Ty Corbin will make for a more than adequate replacement. We'll see.

But yes, this is very sad. Sloan, Larry Brown, Don Nelson, possibly Phil Jackson. The times, they are a-changing...

I heard it's because a disagreement with the front office, and their growing desire to shed payroll.

In any event, what a run. Dude was hired the year I was born. I can't envision the Jazz with anybody else at the helm.

What a racist!

completely took the utah jazz out of the lebron sweepstakes with his policy on sweatbands. I've heard Deron williams was threatning to bolt if for similar reasons. Its absurb how a coach with a full head of hair can't even sympathize for these balding players.

My guess is he'll retire. But that would be amazing.

Wow. Apparently it's due in part to Deron Williams' diva behavior.

I follow some Jazz boards so there were SOME rumblings but everything I read told me he was going to retire at the end of the year (whenever that was).

I knew about Deron Williams being somewhat of an issue, which was surprising considering Sloan could've buried him in his rookie year but kept with him and put him in a situation to succeed. I also knew that there were a lot of front office issues too.

It's going to be weird watching that team play without Sloan as their coach. That team took on the personality of Sloan and losing Johnson is just as big as he's Sloan's right hand man on that staff. Like I said in an earlier post this week, the Jazz are in a huge transitional phase right now.

It still wouldn't surprise me to see Deron bolt though.

Damn, that's sad to hear. He's coached so many great players, for some reason I just never imagined this to happen. He's been coaching from before I was even born to me it seemed like he was just gonna coach the Jazz for the rest of his life.

Just throwing this out there, but Williams seems increasingly upset about not being held in the same esteem as other premier players. He also doesn't seem to like that power is being consolidated and in discussions about New York, he's not being mentioned as a choice for their big 3, even though he is a free agent the same year as CP3. That might be why is being more of a prima donna. Mind you, that's all speculation.

i never really thought of it, but you're right, could be the case. it all depends on his personality. I hope Deron doesn't leave, he is a jazz warrior, and if he does it will be a great upset for me and i'm sure many more.

So CB 2.0? Wouldn't surprise me, good call.

If that really played a large part in Sloan's leaving then I'm pretty disappointed with Jazz management.

I'd have traded Deron (maybe for CP3?) before I ever got rid of Sloan.

Sad, sad day.

As long as Deron is in Utah, management will bend over backwards for him. They knew Sloan was done, so they'd rather invest in the player instead of a guy who's leaving.
