07:20 AM ET 11.06 | 'Tis the season. So we're getting our Eight Fearless Predictions to commemorate the league's 68th season. ... 6. Jerry Sloan will replace Ty Corbin as coach of the Utah Jazz. This might rank as the most extreme projection on our board, but I can't shake the nagging belief that Sloan really does want to coach in this league one more time. And no spot for a comeback makes more sense than the SLC, where the 71-year-old is back with the franchise in an advisory role that carries a near-daily presence. ... [It] really doesn't strike me as a stretch to suggest that if we ever see Sloan back in the game -- for all the belief that he'd only come back at this point to coach a win-now squad -- Utah is where it's most likely to happen. Perhaps it would only be Sloan taking over on an interim basis if things go awry.

God bless Jerry Sloan but he's too old to coach. PJ won his last title four seasons ago when he was 64 and was pretty tired and worn out by then.

Jerry being 71 years old now should just sit back and enjoy the memory.

I always liked Jerry Sloan......a member of the original (1st year) Bulls back in 66-67. Liked his style of play since I could remember.

That being said......he needs to consider the 'upside' to remaining a "consultant".
