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.”
Jerry sloan backs out of bobcats job as sad as this make me I really can blame him

Michael Jordan, why did you let Jerry Sloan pull out of the head coaching position? Another move, you'll regret.

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.
The Bobcats lost a great opportunity to get Jerry Sloan now he withdrew from the coaching search smh…they better get Brian Shaw

I really hope the Charlotte Bobcats hire former Laker assistant coach Brian Shaw as their new head coach…he is the right man for the job.

Everyone loves Shaw. Not too many people are fond of Snyder though.
The reward for Quinn Snyder's epic fail at Missouri is the head job with Charlotte Bobcats!
