Monson: On the sideline coaching is where Jerry Sloan belongs

< Previous Page

Here’s a more likely scenario: Sloan will become more and more active with the Jazz again. He’s already been attending a lot of games at EnergySolutions Arena. He’s been in Chicago this week at the NBA Combine, checking out things for the Jazz, advising them. And that’s what he’ll do more and more. He’ll take a paid advisory role in Utah, helping his old club find its way out of the transitional phase it’s thrashing through without taking upon himself all the stress and aggravation of being in the lead chair.

It makes sense for both him and the Jazz. Sloan needs a good place to focus his energy and expertise, and the Jazz need all the help they can get to make it through a challenging bounce-back.

So unless he gets the plum offer he wants and believes he deserves elsewhere, watch for Jerry Sloan to take a higher profile with the home team, his former team, his own team, the team upon whose Mt. Rushmore his face was carved a long, long time ago.

And still is.
