If Jerry Sloan truly has the itch to coach again, there are a number of teams who would have him. The Hall of Fame head coach seemingly called it a career when he resigned from his Jazz job in 2011. Despite never winning a championship, Sloan led Utah to 15 consecutive postseason appearances from 1989-2003. He is the only coach to record 1,000 victories with a single team and only the fifth in NBA history to eclipse the 1,000-win mark. Needless to say, Sloan’s resume speaks for itself.

With Stan Van Gundy having been fired on Monday, Sloan told Fox Sports Florida on Tuesday that he would be interested in coaching the Magic if the opportunity arose.

“Yes, I think so,” Sloan said. “It would be very intriguing. But they would have to be interested in me.”

If you’re skeptical about the 70-year-old truly wanting to return to coaching, consider the fact that he also said he has interest in coaching the Bobcats but has not heard from them.

“It’s not always about starting at the top,” he said when asked about Charlotte’s historically horrible 7-59 record.

Sloan says he needed to get away from basketball back in 2011 but he still has a “void of basketball.” As for whether or not he could coach Dwight Howard in the event that the Magic do not trade him, Sloan said that is for other people to decide. Do us all a favor, Jerry — stay away from Charlotte.
