Jerry Sloan Resigns Today
This blog is mainly for my woodworking projects to be shown and discussed, however, I learned some news today that I thought deserved a post. Jerry Sloan, the 24 year Coach of the NBA's Utah Jazz, is being reported to resign today along with his assistant coach Phil Johnson. I have always been a fan of the Jazz ever since I was a young boy planing in the Jr. Jazz community leagues. I love going to their games and watching them on TV. Learning of the departure of Sloan is a bitter-sweet moment for me. On one hand he has been the coach for so long, it will be odd to see someone else in his place. On the other hand, I have felt for the past couple of years that if the Jazz had a different coach, would they possibly be able to get over the hump and win a championship? Don't get me wrong, Sloan has been a great coach, but I do think that it has been some time coming for him to part ways with the Jazz. I'm excited to see who will take his place, and to see how his replacement will revamp the game strategy of the Jazz. They have a great team with a lot of young talent. I see good things for their future. GO JAZZ!!!
