Sloan Given Extension by Jazz

By  | 

Jerry Sloan will return as the coach of the Utah Jazz for the 2009-2010 season.

The Jazz said Sunday that Sloan agreed to a one-year contract
extension that will mark his 22nd season at Utah. Details of the
contract were not available.

Sloan is the longest tenured coach in NBA history after taking
over for former coach Frank Layden on December 9, 1988.

Earlier this season, Sloan became the first NBA coach to win
1,000 games with one team. Since Sloan's hiring there have been 225
coaching changes in the NBA and every team has made at least two
changes except for Utah.
