NBA coaching legend retires midseason.

11 Feb

Jerry Sloan, longtime coach of the Utah Jazz, resigned yesterday from his position right before the upcoming NBA All star break. Sloan coached the Jazz for 23 season and led them to 1,127 wins, the third highest amount of wins for a coach in league history.
“I had a feeling this time was the time to move on,” an emotional Sloan said during a Thursday afternoon news conference. “That’s a long time to be in one organization. Again, I’ve been blessed. Today is a new day. When I get this over with, I’ll feel better. My time is up and it’s time to move on.”
Sloan stated that he was simply tired and running out of energy to coach anymore. Many consider disagreements with all Star point guard Derron Williams as another major reason behind Sloan’s surprising resignation.
