07:03 AM ET 05.14 | After moving past Phil Jackson, the list of future Hall of Fame coaches who could be enticed to put off retirement again includes Jerry Sloan. According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the former Utah Jazz coach who resigned abruptly in Feb. 2011 has already met with the Milwaukee Bucks about their vacant coaching position and is being seriously considered. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the coaching search. Sloan has been looking for a landing spot for quite some time, but he could be a tailor-made fit for a Bucks situation that has much in common with the Utah job he held for 23 years.

Sloan is an excellent HC and at is his best when teaching the game to youngsters. He did an excellent job in post Makine/Stockton era.

He's a great coach. Isn't that why teams usually hire coaches?The better question is why do teams still hire D'Antoni?

Because of superstars wanting him to be their coach? lol

Exactly. Sloan is a great coach, and the league would be better off with him back in it.
