SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has signed a deal to return next year for his 23rd season as Utah's head coach.

The team announced the deal Wednesday.

The 67-year-old Sloan, inducted into the Hall of Fame in September, is the longest-tenured active coach in major professional sports.

He's also the longest-tenured coach in NBA history and helped the Jazz reach consecutive NBA finals in 1997-98. Last season, he became the first NBA coach to win 1,000 games with one franchise.
