Layden thanks Mormon people (The great goodbye)

Summarized by Kent Larsen

Layden thanks Mormon people (The great goodbye)
Deseret News 11Aug99 C9
By Doug Robinson: Deseret News sports writer

After 18 years with the Utah Jazz, Scott Layden has left to work for the New York Knicks. But Layden is leaving with kind words of thanks for members of the LDS Church. His words were meant for "particularly the people of the Mormon faith," whom he credited for teaching him values and how to raise a family.

Ironically, Layden is not leaving Mormons behind completely. His new job at the Knicks reports to Dave Checketts, a member of the LDS Church. Checketts knew Layden as president of the Utah Jazz before he left in 1989.
