Jerry Sloan Resigns: Will Utah Jazz Make Playoffs Without Head Coach?

February 10th, 2011 by Wes O'Donnell Leave a reply »
It seems that 23-years is enough for the Hall of Fame coach of the Utah Jazz; Jerry Sloan is resigning after signing a one-year contract extension only a few days ago.

The Utah Jazz are 31-23 overall and the sixth seed in the Western Conference right now.

They have stumbled as of late and are only 9-12 since Jan. 1.

According to reports there was an altercation between Sloan and star point guard, Deron Williams, at halftime of their loss to the Bulls.

This was also not the first time these two have not gotten along and reports cite that the relationship has been falling apart for some time now. 

Williams has always been known as a fiery leader with a strong will to win games and obviously some of the things done by Sloan and/or Williams has not gone over well with the other.

Franchises are typically known to side by their star player, especially when losing, and I believe Sloan was sensing this as well.

The question now remains; will the Utah Jazz make the postseason without Jerry Sloan?
