Jerry Sloan has been out of basketball for just over one year, but the longtime head coach of the Utah Jazz would like to return to the sidelines in the near future. The veteran coach has interest in both of the jobs currently open, too, according to interview he did on Tuesday.
Sloan told the Salt Lake Tribune on Tuesday that he's talked to Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan -- the same player that beat his Jazz in the NBA Playoffs -- and could meet with them by the end of the week.
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."
Sloan told FOX Sports Florida on Tuesday he has interest in the Orlando Magic job.
"Yes, I think so,'' Sloan said from his farm in McLeansboro, Ill., about his interest. "It would be very intriguing. But they would have to be interested in me.''
It seems that Sloan wants to coach in the NBA this year, regardless of location. Considering his history, there's almost definitely going to be a team interested in his services.
