Jazz CEO Tells Story of Sloan’s Resignation
In a rare and wide-ranging media interview, the Utah Jazz CEO (Greg Miller) shared stories about his job and personal life.
The juiciest part came at the end when Miller was asked about (Jerry) Sloan, who was hired as a senior basketball adviser last week.
“I should tell you guys the story,” he said.
The beginning of the end for Sloan and his 23-year tenure as the Jazz’s head coach, Miller explained, began with the last play of the first half in Utah’s home game against the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 9, 2011. And, yes, it revolved around an increasingly contemptuous relationship All-Star point guard Deron Williams had with the Hall of Fame coach.
