Jerry Sloan died this morning
quote:

The Utah Jazz announced that Jerry Sloan died this morning due to complications from Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia at age 78.


From the Utah Jazz:

quote:

“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. We are so thankful for what he accomplished here in Utah and the decades of dedication, loyalty and tenacity he brought to our franchise.

“Our Hall of Fame coach for 23 years, Jerry had a tremendous impact on the Jazz franchise as expressed by his banner hanging in the arena rafters. His 1,223 Jazz coaching wins, 20 trips to the NBA Playoffs and two NBA Finals appearances are remarkable achievements. His hard-nosed approach only made him more beloved. Even after his retirement, his presence at Jazz games always brought a roaring response from the crowd.

“Like Stockton and Malone as players, Jerry Sloan epitomized the organization. He will be greatly missed. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Tammy, the entire Sloan family and all who knew and loved him.”


From the Miller Family:

quote:

“It was an honor and a privilege to have one of the greatest and most respected coaches in NBA history coaching our team. We have appreciated our relationship with Jerry and acknowledge his dedication to and passion for the Utah Jazz. He has left an enduring legacy with this franchise and our family. The far-reaching impact of his life has touched our city, state and the world as well as countless players, staff and fans. We pray his family will find solace and comfort in Jerry’s life. The Miller family and Jazz organization will be proud to honor him with a permanent tribute.”

I didn’t even know he was sick.

Did everyone else know he was sick?

I guess I was the last one to know.

Weird story about the start of his coaching career. He took the job at his alma mater Evansville and withdrew 5 days later. That same season the Evansville team and head coach were killed in a plane crash.

Yeah I don’t think it’s close. Those Jazz teams at the end of his career were tough with Deron Williams too

RIP

Why do people blame the year for a person’s death vs the actual cause?

Crazy fact about Sloan, an Evansville basketball legend:

quote:

While at Evansville, coach McCutchan suggested that Sloan coach at his alma mater. After retiring in 1976, Sloan took the Evansville job, but withdrew after five days. That same season, the Evansville basketball team and coaching staff were killed in a plane crash at Evansville Airport.
