  • Jerry Sloan won 1,000 games as the Jazz's head coach

Former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has passed away at the age of 78.

The Jazz said he died from complications related to Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia.

"Jerry Sloan was "The Original Bull" whose tenacious defense and nightly hustle on the court represented the franchise and epitomized the city of Chicago".

He coached franchise icons Karl Malone, John Stockton and Mark Eaton out of the gates.

Williams, 35, played in Utah under the tutelage of Sloan for the first five-and-a-half seasons of his career.

'Our Hall of Fame coach for 23 years, Jerry had a tremendous impact on the Jazz franchise as expressed by his banner hanging in the arena rafters. Whether it be his hall of fame career with the organization that stretched from 1966-1976, his coaching tenure with the organization that stretched from 1978-1982, or even his time as head coach in the Utah Jazz organization from 1988-2011, where his team became one of the Bulls' bitter rivals for a period of time.

The world of basketball is mourning the loss of Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan, with Miami Heat president Pat Riley offering a tribute to someone he both played against and battled as an NBA head coach. We are so thankful for what he accomplished here in Utah and the decades of dedication, loyalty and tenacity he brought to our franchise.

"The clear identity that he established for Jazz Basketball - unselfishness, toughness and the essential importance of Team - has always left a palpable responsibility to strive for in carrying forward". He will be greatly missed. The Jazz went to the playoffs 20 times in his 23 seasons, including back-to-back trips to the NBA Finals in 1996-97 and 1997-98. "We extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Tammy, the entire Sloan family and all who knew and loved him". "I was honored by the opportunity to follow in Coach Sloan's giant footsteps, and subsequently humbled by the task of trying to uphold the standards and the success that are synonymous with his legacy".

"I'm not scared", Sloan said at the time. "We have appreciated our relationship with Jerry and acknowledge his dedication to and passion for the Utah Jazz".
