Shocking...I don't like it, they will both be missed terribly. Not good, not good at all!

Herriman, UT

A huge shocker. I thought the game ended badly (poor play calls and poor play making by Williams...it happens, even to very good players), but expected nothing like this.

If it is true, thanks Coach for a great run! Fixtures like you are missed.

Ogden, UT


should have won coah of the year multiple times during his career

sad way to leave the organization after all he's done...

wouldn't be happening if Larry was still running the organization

Saratoga Springs, UT

I have heard many Jazz fans say that Sloan is the problem, and that he is the one that needed to go. But my question is this? Who is going to replace him? One of the assistants probably, and they have all been in the system so long that the only way they know how to coach is how Sloan did it. If the coaching was the problem, the Jazz need to clean house, along with the GM and change the philosophy of the team.

I hate to go off topic, but that is what RSL did, and they won a championship after that.

:( Beginning of the end. In a year DWill walks too.

Jerry always said that if he felt he was not good for the team, he would step down....

Maybe he is feeling that the players are no longer listening to him and maybe a change is in order....

WHo would replace him? Phil will be gone as well.

Say it aint so!!!!

Thanks coach, for a great run.

When is the press conference???

Salt Lake City, UT

Larry is rolling in his grave.

Farmington, UT

Absolutely awful! Thanks D-Will! Happy you got your way now???????

Good for Jerry and Phil. Guess they got sick and tired of trying to coach a bunch of lazy, disinterested, underachievers......

Farmington, UT

could things get any worse?

Saint George, UT

Alright all you Negative Nellies, you got your wish, now what?

Salt Lake City, UT

Yayyyyyy I am sooooo happy now!!!

Salt Lake City, Utah

and thus... the beginning of the end.

Heber City, UT

I guess their comes a time when the Coach says enough is enough. I am tired of trying to make professional players out of spoiled brats who think they only have to come and pick up a paycheck.
These players should spend every week day in the off season keeping their bodies in shape so they won't continue to have so many physical problems. I would have been laid off if I missed as much work as Boozer does and as does Kirilenko.

Players if you want to make millions then I suggest you better start playing like millionaires, because what I see, you have been taught and coached, but it is not sinking in. You claim you have pride in winning and doing well, but it sure is not evident on the floor.

Salt Lake City, UT

Jerry Sloan = Top 5 coach in the league for the past 20 years.

Are there any other Top 5 coaches ready to be hired?

Jazz are done. DWill walks in a year.

All you spoiled fans who were so upset that we made the playoffs every year without winning a championship will now realize what its like to go to the lotter every year.

It's over!


This is VERY BAD! Coach Sloan is one of the top NBA coaches of all time and if this is the end of his tenure in Utah it's a sad day in Jazz history.

Thanks to Coach Sloan for his dedication to teaching his players to play the game the right way and for being the type of role model our kids growing up in Utah could look up to.

Henderson, NV

Can't say I blame him. Thanks for the memories coach. You will be missed.

On another note, Jimmer for Coach!

West Jordan, UT

If Sloan wants to retire then that is fine and he has certainly earned it. But if he is being forced out in any way then I am done with the Jazz. The Jazz need a new GM A LOT more than they need a new coach!!
