Among the players Krystkowiak coached with the Bucks was former Ute All-American Andrew Bogut.

Krystkowiak appeared in 71 games with the Jazz in 1992-93 and averaged just over seven points and slightly less than four rebounds.

That one year under Jerry Sloan greatly influenced his coaching style.

“Jerry would never know it, but I loved his demeanor,” Krystkowiak said in a Jazz website feature. “He doesn’t wear anybody out with a lot of words, but when he opens his mouth, what he says is valid and you’d better be listening to what he is saying. I like his hard-driving style and having played under a number of different coaches, I enjoyed being underneath him

He had career averages of 8.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
