Before Deron Williams ran him out of town, Jerry Sloan served as head coach of the Utah Jazz for 23 years. Before that, he was a key contributor on NBA teams for 11 seasons in the 1960s and '70s—spending 10 of those years with the Bulls—and averaged 14 points and seven rebounds.
He then went on to coach the Bulls for three seasons in the '80s, before accepting the role he would serve for the next two decades. Sloan led the Stockton-and-Malone Jazz teams to 10 50-win seasons and back-to-back Finals appearances in 1997 and 1998. At 72, his days on the bench are likely over, but the Hall of Fame coach will go down as one of the best former players to transform his talents into tangible results as a coach.
