Sloan interviews for Bobcats job
The Charlotte Bobcats reportedly interviewed Jerry Sloan for their vacant coaching job on Friday.
Sloan, the former Utah Jazz coach, met with Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and other team executives, according to the Deseret News of Salt Lake City.
“They might come back, they might not,” Sloan told the newspaper. “I can’t judge that. We’ll just have to wait and see where it goes from there. … They want to make a decision when they can, and do all their homework.”
Sloan, 70, coached the Jazz for 23 seasons prior to stepping down in February 2011.
Mike Dunlap, Patrick Ewing, Dave Joerger, Nate McMillan, Mike Malone, Stephen Silas and Nate Tibbetts have also reportedly interviewed for the job. The team plans to meet with Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw as well.
The Bobcats were perhaps the worst team in the league history this season at 7-59.
