    Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    Report: Jerry Sloan to resign - CBSSports.com

    Class guy. Did things in the SLC that will be hard to duplicate. He'll be missed.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    He just signed an extension last week. I think this might be really bad news. Possibly health problems.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I have the same worry as you. After having just signed that extension I'd imagine it would have to be something pretty serious -- his own health or someone close to him -- to get him to step down.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    When he signed it, I thought "Wow, this guy will last forever."

    This seems really sudden.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    There is a source that is claiming his top assistant is resigning too...so that might discount the health concern...I hope!

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    Too bad, easily the most underrated coach of the last couple of decades. When you look at how disposable NBA coaches are these days its even more incredible just how long he was in Utah.

    Yeah I think the fact that they're both leaving eliminates the health issue. Something must have went down behind the scenes recently, Sloan is the last person I would expect to step down mid season.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    According to the Jazz beat writer, Sloan and Deron Williams had heated confrontations early in the season, two weeks ago, and last night after they lost to the Bulls.

    Figured something was up when the morning stories mentioned that Sloan always meets with the media immediately following games. But last night he was in a meeting with the GM for 30 minutes and would not comment about it afterwards but did say he would talk about it today.

    He is as first-class as anyone in the NBA!

    It sucks when the inmates try to run the asylum, but that seems to be the direction of the NBA.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    I have remained a Utah fan since the Jeff Hornacek era mainly because of Jerry Sloan. He is an awesome coach! Definitely has gotten the most out of his teams.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    The way it is reported at ESPN makes it sound like a lot internal conflicts between him and players.

    Re: Jerry Sloan unexpectedly steps down

    Longest tenured coach in professional sports. 23 years as the head guy at Utah. That's pretty amazing in this day and age. Wish him nothing but the best.

    The players led a mutiny and now run the show at SLC.
