Jerry Sloan confirms to FOX Sports Florida a USA Today report met with the Bucks regarding coach job. Details here
Jerry Sloan said Monday that Milwaukee general manager John Hammond and Bucks executives Jeff Weltman and Billy McKinney all came down last week to his farm in Southern Illinois.
“They came down. I was in Illinois. I’m back in Utah now,’’ said Sloan, who splits his time between his farm in Southern Illinois. “But I wouldn’t want to make any other comment.’’
Asked if he believes he’s seriously in the mix for the job, Sloan said, “You’d have to ask them (the Bucks).’’
Sloan reiterated what he told FOX Sports Florida earlier this month, that he continues to have interest in getting back into coaching.
“I do if the situation is right,’’ said Sloan, 71, who hasn’t coached since resigning from Utah in February 2011.
The Hall of Famer declined to say if he considers the Milwaukee situation right.
Sloan said he hasn’t talked to any other teams besides Milwaukee.
