A hard-nosed contract negotiator, Sloan earned a reputation of somewhat of a hustler while playing with the Bulls. His playing career was cut short by successive knee injuries, and he turned his attention to coaching. Because of his influential career with the Bulls, the franchise retired Sloan's No. 4 jersey, the first jersey retired by the Bulls.


Coaching career

Immediately after retiring, Sloan was hired by the Bulls as a scout. After one season in this role, he became an assistant coach with the team. In 1979, Sloan moved up the ranks to become head coach of the Chicago franchise. He was head coach of the Bulls for less than three seasons, winning 94 games and losing 121. He led the team to the playoffs in his second year, but was fired after a poor start during the next campaign.


After departing Chicago, Sloan became a scout for the Utah Jazz for one season. He then became coach of the Evansville Thunder of the Continental Basketball Association for the 1984 season before returning to the rank of Utah assistant. After Frank Layden's retirement from the Utah Jazz in 1988 as head coach, the Jazz chose Sloan to be his successor. Sloan enjoyed a highly successful run of sixteen consecutive seasons of taking his team to the playoffs, and he has coached such players as Karl Malone, John Stockton, Jeff Hornacek, Antoine Carr, Tom Chambers, Mark Eaton, and Jeff Malone during the process.

In spring of 2004, Sloan and his team were involved in a battle for the eighth spot in the NBA's western conference for that season, which would have given Sloan his seventeenth straight trip to the playoffs. The Jazz were tied with the Denver Nuggets for the eighth and last spot of the playoffs with three games to go in the regular season. The Jazz lost these final two games, causing Sloan to miss the playoffs for the first time in eighteen seasons as Jazz coach. After leading a young, dismantled team to an unexpected 42-40 record, he finished just behind Hubie Brown of the Memphis Grizzlies in voting for the 2004 NBA Coach of the Year Award, an award that he has still never won, despite his success.

After disappointing seasons in 2004-05 and 2005-06, the strong play of the Jazz in the 2006-07 season had renewed speculation from some sportswriters that Sloan would be a strong candidate for NBA Coach of the Year in 2007. But Sloan lost the award to Sam Mitchell, coach of the Toronto Raptors, who led his team to a franchise-record-tying 47 victories and their first Atlantic Division title. Sloan lost by 93 points, 394-301. Third place runner up was Avery Johnson of the Dallas Mavericks with 268 points.[1]


Sloan and the Jazz advanced to the Western Conference finals on May 15th, 2007 with a 100-87 win over the Golden State Warriors.
