Jerry Sloan has not closed the door on making a return to the bench, though he won't actively campaign for a new job.

If presented with the right opportunity, Sloan would consider taking another head coaching position in the NBA.

The 69-year-old Sloan left the Jazz mid-season after the team's play deteriorated and there was a reported spat with Deron Williams, who was subsequently traded to New Jersey.

He'll be back

A typical example of Jerry's thinking in an article about the best guys the Jazz got rid of over their years in Utah.

Quote:
Dell Curry

His exit » Traded to Cleveland with Kent Benson in three-team deal that brought Mel Turpin and Daryl Dawkins to Utah.

His career » Curry played 15 more seasons in the NBA, appearing in 1,016 games and averaging 12 points with a high of 16.3 for Charlotte in 1993-94 when he was voted the Sixth Man of the Year.

The famous story of how Curry’s short stay with the Jazz ended involves the pro-am summer league game in which Jeff Judkins, by then a retired NBA player, hit a winning shot over Curry that caused Jerry Sloan, then a Jazz assistant, to sour on Curry’s future. Well, he played only 16 seasons in the league. Curry thrived as a shooter, while passing on that trait to his son Stephen, who plays for Golden State.

He was better than Hanson from day 1 as was Griffith.

As first reported by UtahMitch (who was in attendance), Phil Johnson won Man of the Year from the Idaho-Utah Multiple Sclerosis Society. The award is :
given to an individual whose philanthropic, educational and civic activities strengthen the community.
Not to take anything away from Phil and the work that he did for MS, but also in attendance was Jerry Sloan and David Checketts. The RSL owner spoke to ESPN 700 yesterday and stated that the ownership of the Detroit Pistons had reached out to Sloan about coaching:
I'll tell you this about Jerry and I don't think this has been published anywhere...he's one of the people that was asked whether he'd consider sitting down with the new owner of the Pistons and bless his heart, he thought about it for a couple of days and came back and said he wasn't ready to go back to work. I do believe he will.
Transcribed by moni

Remember, Checketts was brought on as a consultant for the Pistons this summer. I don't know if he spoke to him about it at this function or if there were talks previously.


I really didn't see him coming back from retirement to coach again, but after some time off, he might not be able to fight the desire to return. It would kill me to see him roaming another sideline.



Personally I'd love to see him prove what a great coach he's supposed to be without the job security and superstars he had in SLC. Detroit has some young talent but are a mess. Maybe Phil will take a job and Jerry will be lead assistant?

In his book, Amaechi was highly critical of coach Jerry Sloan, castigating him for his old-school and often profane motivational techniques. "Jerry raged against players whom he thought didn't play hard enough, claiming they were undermining coaches across the league," Amaechi wrote. "If we lost two or three in a row, he would stride into practice yelling, 'You (expletives) are trying to get me fired. I'm not losing my job because you guys aren't hustling.' "During one of these job-insecurity diatribes, Karl (Malone) looked at me and smirked, 'If only we were so lucky.' Then he went back to the posture he'd long ago adopted: working diligently on his game while pretending Jerry didn't exist."

Jerry Sloan is too good, too respected, to start his own coaching campaign. So as the 69-year-old answers questions about whether he might leave retirement behind and return to the job that he loved for nearly three decades, you get the sense he's resisting the urge to make some formal announcement of his desires. "I think if the right situation came along, whatever that is," he said before pausing to ponder. "I don't know what the right situation is. We'll have to wait and see, I guess." SI.com

But it didn't take long for teams to call, inquiring about his itch to get back on the bench, and sources said the Pacers were among those seriously hoping to land him before they gave Frank Vogel a permanent position. "Before, I was just visiting with people [from teams], but they knew that I wasn't ready to coach ... back in the summer," said Sloan, who returned to his house in Utah in recent months. "I didn't know if anybody was going to call [after that]. Maybe they won't. I don't know what my reaction would be. I had some people call when they'd lost their coaches. I was honest with them." SI.com

But the honest truth has changed since then. And considering energy has played such a significant part in Sloan's decision-making, he's sounding as if a return could be in the cards. "My energy level has changed a great deal since I quit coaching," said Sloan, who is an avid walker. "It's changed a lot now. I've had time to work out. I feel better. "I had a chance to relax, to do something that I haven't had the time to do in 30 years. That's rewarding. You have time to spend with the family and have Thanksgiving and things like that. I enjoyed all of that. But [returning to coaching] is a decision where, if somebody talked to me, I'd review the situation like anybody else and take it from there." SI.com

The Maloof brothers who own the team think very highly of Sloan, and sources said that Tammy hopes her husband returns to coaching and was favorable of the idea of possibly residing in Sacramento. Within hours of Westphal's firing, however, the team announced that assistant coach Keith Smart would take over. A Kings source said he was given a new deal that's guaranteed through this season with a team option for next season, meaning Sloan could be a candidate for that job and any other where his expertise is needed.

Could be good for Wall once they figure out who can run the pick and roll with him anyway.

From Karl Malone interview:

Quote:
"I think Coach Sloan will coach again in the NBA. Absolutely...I would love to [be an assistant coach], with Coach Sloan."

* Jerry Sloan quit because he didn't get the support of Jazz management, last year. Malone claimed that he had it on good authority that Deron Williams' insubordination had persisted and finally boiled over that night last season against Chicago in the Jazz locker room. Williams had broken several plays during the game and the coach and player argued heatedly afterward.

According to Malone, Jazz CEO Greg Miller and general manager Kevin O'Connor failed to back up Sloan's wishes to suspend Williams, so he quit. Still, the hole in the story is that if Williams was more valuable than Sloan, why trade him a week after Sloan quit?

On Jerry Sloan's exit
"I know for a fact, knowing Coach Sloan, if we're getting our butts kicked, we're practicing. I know for a fact that he was overridden on practices sometime on the road. Because Deron [Williams] was calling our GM.

"Coach pissed off, go in the locker room, words were said, Deron said words, Coach Sloan definitely said something, and the powers that be was there.

"In that defining moment, when [Jazz team management] shoulda stood up for Jerry Sloan...they chose Deron Williams. And Coach Sloan, being the coach I know and love, said, you know what? We should part the ways...And once Coach Sloan says something, it's history."

Well as we've seen this year a coach is a lot easier to replace than a superstar point guard especially for an offensive system that revolves around the 1. Why they traded him after not backing the coach doesn't make much sense though.

Two sources close to Sloan said he appears recharged and could return to coaching next season. Six teams have already unsuccessfully tried to lure him back before he was ready, the sources said.

Don’t be surprised if Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan is back on the sideline next season. Sloan, who resigned just over a year ago after a remarkable career with the Utah Jazz, piqued the interest of some NBA teams during the offseason, one being the Indiana Pacers who eventually rehired Frank Vogel. But Sloan, who turns 70 on March 28, apparently has the coaching itch again and would seriously consider a return to coaching. Sloan is just one of three NBA coaches to ever have had 15 consecutive winning seasons. The others? Phil Jackson and Pat Riley. Racine Journal-Times

We’re hearing that the Bobcats may take a look at Jerry Sloan to replace Paul Silas. The former Utah Jazz coach would be a tremendous, out-of-the-box choice and the first indication that Jordan is committed to turning his seven-win team around. New York Daily News

Besides the Jordan issue, Sloan would also have to be willing to work under GM Rich Cho, who has been entrusted by Jordan to rebuild the team after it closed out the season with 23 straight losses and broke the NBA record by winning only 10.6% of its games. “That would be like going from being the heavyweight champ to being a sparring partner,” said one Sloan confidant the other day. “Why go get beat up? Why would Jerry want to be in a rebuilding situation, at this stage of his life? He doesn’t take losing easy. He takes it hard.” New York Daily News

I'd rather see him take something like this and see what he can do with it than going into the obvious fit like the Clippers where the pick and roll is already set up for him. His best job was when he got out of his comfort zone for a season after John and Karl were gone and he actually changed what he usually did which is part of what's interesting now with Ty as he continues to grow into the job.

The Bobcats are not expected to make a hire for several weeks. They also have interest in Indiana assistant Brian Shaw, former Portland and Seattle coach Nate McMillan, and former Utah coach Jerry Sloan, sources said. Bobcats assistant Stephen Silas, son of recently released coach Paul Silas, will also be interviewed, according to sources. ESPN.com
