Feb. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Jerry Sloan of the Utah Jazz, the longest-tenured coach in the National Basketball Association, resigned in the middle of his 23rd season, the team announced today in a news conference.

Sloan, who took over the Jazz in 1988 when Frank Layden retired, had signed a one-year extension on Feb. 7. Jazz assistant coach Phil Johnson also stepped down.

Sloan, 68, has a career record of 1,221-803 and led the Jazz to the NBA finals in 1997 and 1998, losing both series to the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan. He was inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach in 2009.

Sloan has 1,127 career wins with the Jazz and is the only coach in NBA history with more than 1,100 victories for a single franchise.
