Blazers wanted Phil Jackson or Jerry Sloan as head coach
 
The Portland Trail Blazers attempted to snag former Utah Jazz coach, Jerry Sloan, out of retirement this week by formally offering him their head coach position in Salt Lake City.

Sloan later turned down the offer, but that wasn't the Trail Blazers first big swing.

For the last few months, the Trail Blazers have been in back-and-forth discussions with Phil Jackson in an attempt to persuade him to take their head coaching vacancy, a close source said.


Last week, Jackson's agent, Todd Musburger, informed the Trail Blazers that Jackson was flattered, but has decided he would not coach this upcoming season.

It also sounds like Phil Jackson would have wanted to be the President of the Blazers before Olshey took the GM spot. There were reports that Phil would hire Shaw as coach and potentially even help out with coaching at home games. That would have been nice.
