I’ll admit that the thought of 70-year-old Jerry Sloan’s old-school ways coaching a young Bobcats roster strikes me as a poor fit.

I’ll admit that to see Sloan wanting back in the game so bad that he’s not picky about the job he’ll take is a little sad.

But Sloan, the long time Utah Jazz coach, wants back in and he is set to interview with the Bobcats on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

The Bobcats are casting a wide net. Also linked to the process have been Stan Van Gundy, Quinn Snyder of the Lakers, Nate McMillan last of the Trail Blazers, Patrick Ewing of the Orlando Magic, Grizzlies’ assistant Dave Joerger, Mike Malone of Golden State, Cleveland’s Nate Tibbetts, St. John’s Mike Dunlap and Bobcats assistant Stephen Silas (son of former coach Paul Silas). Also, now that the Pacers are eliminated, expect Brian Shaw to get a call.

All those people could be a lot more interested if the Bobcats win the draft lottery next week and have the rights to Anthony Davis.
