Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan has resigned from his position, according to multiple reports coming out of Salt Lake City. Tyrone Corbin will be the team's coach until a replacement is named.

Sloan coached the Jazz for 23 years, but was reportedly feeling undermined by the way ownership was running the team now.

According to a YahooSports.com article, Sloan and star player Deron Williams had a big argument during halftime of Wednesday's game, and Sloan felt as though ownership was siding with Williams.

Sloan was inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009 and was very well-respected around the league.

Throughout his career as coach of the Utah Jazz, Sloan mentored some of the best basketball players in the history of the sport.

Feel free to comment below with your favorite memories of Sloan, and the best players he coached while with Utah.
