Utah Governor announces Jerry Sloan DayUtah Governor Gary R. Herbert has officially declared January 31, 2014 as “Jerry Sloan Day,” as the State of Utah joins the Utah Jazz organization in honoring the legendary former head coach with a retired jersey banner at EnergySolutions Arena on Friday.

An excerpt from the declaration states that the State of Utah joins in “recognizing the enduring legacy of one of the greatest and most respected coaches in the history of the National Basketball Association.” It also recognizes Sloan for his “invaluable contributions to elevating and advancing the visibility and status of professional sports, particularly basketball, not only in our state but throughout the nation.”

Gov. Herbert’s declaration also highlights many of Sloan’s accomplishments, such as finishing his coaching career with the third most wins in NBA history en route to two NBA Finals appearances, seven division championships, 13 seasons with more than 50 wins, 16 consecutive winning seasons, and 19 playoff appearances.

Sloan will become the 11th individual in Jazz history to have a banner raised in his honor during a special halftime ceremony at the Jazz game on Jan. 31. A jersey with numerals 1223 will be unveiled, commemorating his total number of regular season and playoff victories during his 23 seasons as the Jazz coach.
