It would seem weird if it were any other way.
Jerry Sloan is close to agreeing to an extension with the Jazz, as he does just about every year about this time, as the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
“It’s just a matter of time and we’ll probably we get it worked out,” Sloan said. “This is how we do it every year. … I’m really not concerned about it.”
He officially signed on Aug. 5 to coach the Jazz this season. Sloan has annually made a decision about each upcoming campaign by late December, and then used the offseason to evaluate his desire about returning to the team.
As if there was any question that this would get done. The owners love him. Sloan is like Mike Krzyzewski and a handful of other college coaches that get to choose when they retire. Sloan one summer will decide he doesn’t want to come back and let the team know, early enough that they will be able to get a good coach to replace him.
But it won’t be the same.
