Jerry Sloan
Jerry Sloan steps down as Utah Jazz head coach, and the NBA is lesser for it

It was about two hours before his final news conference when Jerry Sloan picked up the phone. He didn't mind talking, but he asked the interview not be made public until after he spoke before the cameras and microphones in Utah.

It wasn't because he had ratted out Deron Williams, the headstrong player whom he feuded with and who failed to run a play his coach called the other night, or Jazz management, who reportedly failed to back him in that dispute. ( Read Jerry Sloan more... )

Jerry Sloan, Mike Fisher, Cam Newton and Thursday's Late Sports Buzz

The Thursday after the Super Bowl is typically one of most uneventful sports days of the year. This Thursday has been anything but uneventful.

The Utah Jazz made an announcement to spice up this Sloan moving day. You see what I just did there? In case your punny bone needs fine-tuning, what I am trying to say is that Jerry Sloan has announced he will no longer be the Utah Jazz head coach. ( Read Jerry Sloan more... )

I'm shocked to hear of his resignation after 23 years as head coach of the Utah Jazz. Nowadays, it's extremely rare for a player, manager, or coach to spend that much time with one organization. I can't believe how much the NBA has changed since he started coaching the Jazz. It will take a long time to get used to the fact he is no longer the head coach.
