Re: Jerry Sloan steps down, leaves Utah Jazz! Era is over!
Donít 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
