Charlotte Bobcats to Interview Jerry Sloan Today

As expected, Jerry Sloan will interview for the Bobcats’ vacant head coaching position. The AP reports: “A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Bobcats will interview Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan on Friday for their vacant head coaching position. [...] Sloan becomes the ninth known candidate, joining Patrick Ewing, Nate McMillan, Dave Joerger, Mike Malone, Nate Tibbetts, Mike Dunlap and Stephen Silas. The Bobcats also plan to interview Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw. The Bobcats finished the season 7-59, the worst record in NBA history.”

    Let’s go Bobcats!
    I’m on the antibandwagon.

    my two thoughts on this: Sloan is kind of ruining his legacy by doing this which won’t last long because the NBA coaches are always the first fall guys, no matter how inept their roster. Also, I thought Mike and Rich Cho was “committed to the tank” like they won’t screw things up by starting to become better, which Sloan will undoubtedly do.

    Hope he gets it.

    Shu, there is no way Sloan or any other coach can miraculously turn them into a playoff contender within 2-3 years. They want to be a good team but stay lottery bound while they compile assets and develop young guys. Also, I don’t think Sloan cares about his legacy.
