1942: Hall of Fame basketball coach Jerry Sloan, only the fifth coach in NBA history to reach 1,000 victories and the only coach in NBA history to reach that milestone with one club, is born in McLeansboro, Ill. Sloan was the head coach for the Utah Jazz from 1988 through 2011 and also coached the Chicago Bulls from 1979 to 1982. Sloan had a career regular-season record of 1,221–803, placing him third all-time in NBA wins at the time he retired, and led the Jazz to the NBA finals in 1997 and 1998. After one season as a player for the Baltimore Bullets, who made him a first-round draft selection in 1965, he spent another 10 years playing for the Bulls before successive knee injuries cut his playing career short.
