Jerry Sloan

Gerald Eugene Sloan was an American professional basketball player and coach. He played 10 seasons in the National Basketball Association before beginning a 30-year coaching career in the league, 23 of which were spent as head coach of the Utah Jazz. NBA commissioner David Stern referred to Sloan as "one of the greatest and most respected coaches in NBA history". Sloan was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009. As a coach, Sloan had a career regular-season win–loss record of 1,221–803, placing him third all time in NBA wins at the time he retired. He was the fifth coach to reach 1,000 NBA victories and is one of two coaches in NBA history to record 1,000 wins with one club. Sloan also coached for one team longer than anyone in NBA history. The 2009–10 season was his 22nd season as coach of the Jazz. He coached the Jazz to 15 consecutive playoff appearances from 1989 to 2003.
