Jerry Sloan Reportedly Turned Down Portland Head Coaching Job

It seems like just a matter of time before Jerry Sloan hops back into the NBA coaching realm, but according to the Daily News, he actually had an opportunity to do so this summer…and declined: “Jerry Sloan was offered the Portland head coaching job, but turned it down. He still hasn’t found a job he thinks is as good as the one he had in Utah.”

    He wants that Clippers job. I just know it. He wants to turn Paul and Griffin into Stockton and Malone.

    agreed. lakers are too old and messed up for him to take that gig. And I don’t believe that he’d stand Kobster.

    clippers was the first team that popped up in my mind, imagine what he would do to odom

    Sloan and current Clippers = championship, no doubt

    Good call, seeing that neither Sloan nor the Clippers have NEVER won a championship.

    One of the most overrated coaches ever.

    He was consistently decent over his entire career. Never overachieved, rarely underachieved. But to talk about him as one of the best coaches ever is ludicrous.

  • Ugh

    In rare agreement with Caboose here. He had no imagination, and was routinely routed by smarter coaches in playoff series after playoff series. His adjustments from series to series were never enough. His expertise at motivating players and/or his ease at being tuned out by other players (i.e. Malone) helped rack up a lot of regular season wins, though.

    I think the Lakers should pursue him…I can’t think of a coach worse than Mike Brown…

    So they’ve both won a championship?

    idk if the kim k. nba can co-exist w/ sloan. in the 80s the NBA stood for “no b*tches allowed” but today it stands for “now b*tches allowed.”
