Report: Jerry Sloan to Retire

Sources close to the organization are claiming that longtime Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has decided to retire and will make an announcement to that effect at a press conference later today. News of Jerry Sloan retiring will come as a shock to NBA observers for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that just three days ago he signed a one-year contract extension. At present no further details are available, although we will, of course, update this space as more information comes in.

What are your thoughts on Jerry Sloan potentially stepping down from the position he has held since 1988? Is it time for the Utah Jazz to explore their potential under a different head coach? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
