Jerry Sloan Could Return to Coach
Jerry Sloan was the coach of the Utah Jazz NBA basketball team for 22 seasons and left just over one year ago in the middle of the season. Some said he was long overdue, others said Deron Williams was the cause of Coach Sloan’s resignation.
No matter what you want to believe, it doesn’t matter, cause Sloan says he’s interested in coaching again; however, this time it won’t be for the Utah Jazz.
While speaking with Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida, Sloan was quoted saying, “I felt like I needed to get away from basketball, I worked (26) years (as a head coach). It was time for me to move on and see what was going in the world. That’s been kind of interesting. But I still have that void of basketball.”
Word on the streets has it that the Orlando Magic or Charlotte Bobcats are the two teams most likely to show interest in Jerry Sloan as a head coach. Sloan isn’t worried about snagging a job with a big market team, he’s humble and has showed that throughout his career with the Utah Jazz.
Sloan is the third on the list of most winning coaches in NBA history. Some may think his tactics are considered to be too old school to produce a competitive team in the NBA today, I personally think he’d do just fine. The man is a legendary coach and a hall of famer. He will make a positive difference wherever he goes.
