Former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan’s health is reportedly in decline because of Parkinson’s Disease and dementia.
“He is dying,” someone close to the Sloan family told Gordon Monson of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Sloan, 77, was diagnosed with the two conditions in April 2016. Monson reported the Hall of Famer is no longer well enough to attend Jazz games.
Sloan was Jazz head coach from 1988-2011, becoming the winningest coach in franchise history while leading the team to two NBA Finals berths. Utah made the playoffs in each of Sloan’s first 15 seasons. Only Don Nelson, Lenny Wilkins and Gregg Popovich have more wins among NBA coaches.
