Legendary Corridor of Fame coach Jerry Sloan has died on the age of 78 after a battle with Parkinson’s illness and dementia, the Utah Jazz introduced Friday.
Sloan coached the Jazz from 1988-2011 and was the Bulls’ head coach from 1979-82. As a head coach, Sloan was 1,221-803 and made the NBA Finals twice — each with the Jazz. These Jazz groups fell every time to Michael Jordan and the Bulls.
The NBA group shared its condolences with the Sloan household by way of social media, and that included tweets from some present and former gamers and media members.
