Utah Jazz Legend Sloan Dies

Jerry Sloan served for Jazz as coach for 23 years.

Utah Jazz legend Jerry Sloan died on Friday, the NBA franchise announced. He was 78.
"Jerry Sloan will always be synonymous with the Utah Jazz. He will forever be a part of the Utah Jazz organization and we join his family, friends and fans in mourning his loss," the team said on its website.
A Chicago Bulls player from 1966 to 1976, Sloan served for the Jazz as coach for 23 seasons, from 1988 to 2011.
"We are so thankful for what he accomplished here in Utah and the decades of dedication, loyalty and tenacity he brought to our franchise," the Western Conference franchise added.
Sloan carried the Jazz to the NBA Playoffs for 19 out of the 23 seasons.
In 1978 the Bulls retired his no. 4 jersey, making Sloan the team's first-ever player to receive that honor.
