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!!!

I'm shocked to hear of his resignation after over two decades as head coach of the Utah Jazz. Nowadays, it's extremely rare for a player, manager, or coach to spend that much time with one organization. I can't believe how much the NBA has changed since he started coaching the Jazz. It will take a long time to get used to the fact he is no longer the head coach.

sportsfan,
I agree there has been a LOT of changes. I hope that Coach Corbin can assist the Jazz move into more of a modern game, but at the same time keep Coach Sloan's attitude of 'teamwork' and 'loyalty'! It will be differnt not having Sloan on the bench, but I'm confident there will be good things in the future for the Jazz!
