So much for Michael Jordan landing a big-name head coach to take over his Bobcats. Utah Jazz legend Jerry Sloan has turned down the job which will likely leave Charlotte settling for either Brian Shaw or Quin Snyder.

“I took myself out today,” Sloan said. “I don’t want to comment on it because it’s never profitable for anybody. It just makes it sound like you’re making a statement about someone. But they were wonderful and there were no problems. I just took myself out.”

A lot of people think Shaw will make a great coach someday, and he’s also in the running for the Magic’s job. If it comes down to the two, we’re pretty sure he’ll opt for Orlando which will leave the Bobcats with Snyder by default.

Everyone loves Shaw. Not too many people are fond of Snyder though.
