DETROIT PISTONS HEAD COACH DWANE CASEY’S STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF JERRY SLOAN

“Jerry Sloan was a warrior. I got to know him through Coach Clem Haskins when I was an assistant coach in 1980 at Western Kentucky. They played together on the Chicago Bulls. Jerry and Clem spoke every summer at our camp. They would tell stories about their playing days, and I hung on every word.  I would never have imagined we would be coaching against each other when I was an assistant at Seattle and then as a head coach myself.  All of us who love to coach have learned many lessons from Coach Sloan. I send my thoughts to his family and he will be truly missed.”
