Sloan a Candidate for Bobcats Coaching Job

Michael Jordan has compiled quite a list of candidates. Patrick Ewing is already on that list and now Jerry Sloan is as well. The interesting thing about Sloan is that he’s actually interested in the gig. Go figure.

Sloan said on Tuesday that he has talked to Charlotte owner Michael Jordan about the Bobcats’ job and could meet with him as early as this week. […] Reached at his farm outside McLeansboro, Ill., Sloan made it clear he would like to return to coaching after being away from basketball for 15 months. Sloan resigned as coach of the Jazz in February of 2011, citing fatigue after 23 seasons. Asked if he had talked to any team about a job opening, Sloan mentioned Jordan and the Bobcats, who finished 7-59 during the lockout-shortened season and then fired coach Paul Silas. According to Sloan, undertaking such a massive rebuilding job would not prevent him from considering Charlotte. “Obviously, you probably wouldn’t win [a championship] right off the bat,” he said. “But sometimes it’s not all about starting on top.”
