Utah Jazz History

Jerry Sloan

Jerry Sloan


Jerry Sloan was a Hall of Famer, the Original Bull and a Jazz legend, a dirt farmer and a folk hero, a hardnosed and sharp-elbowed defender, a coach who carved teams up with the pick-and-roll, a giant in a John Deere cap, a man who had little use for tuxedos and no patience for jackpotting around, a husband, and a father.
Sloan, who coached the Utah Jazz to 1,223 wins during 23 seasons as the franchise's head coach, died Friday, May 22, 2020, at his Salt Lake home. He was 78.
He will be greatly missed.
