Report: Bucks Meet With Jerry Sloan for Head Coaching Position




Per USA Today Sports, the Milwaukee Bucks have met with Jerry Sloan for its head coaching position.

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.

This is far from a sure thing for Sloan, as the Bucks have apparently met with numerous coaching candidates such as Nate McMillan and Houston assistant Kelvin Sampson, since firing interim coach Jim Boylan after the team was swept in the playoffs by the Miami Heat.

Sloan is said to be very eager to get back into coaching.
