Former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan interviewed in Utah for the Charlotte Bobcats coaching position on Friday, meeting with Michael Jordan and other front office staff members.

Asked what made him want to coach the seven-win Bobcats, Sloan dryly replied: “Work.”

He went on to say, “They’ve got a young team, and it will be interesting to see what happens.”

Sloan said he hadn’t been offered the job. “They might come back, they might not,” he said.
