Utah Jazz bring back former longtime coach Jerry Sloan as consultant

SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan is returning to the team as a consultant.

Jazz President Randy Rigby announced the hire Wednesday evening on 1280 The Zone radio network. Rigby says the Hall of Fame coach will be a senior basketball adviser on a multi-year deal.

Rigby says Sloan will provide guidance to head coach Ty Corbin as well as serve as an extra set of eyes as they evaluate potential players.

Sloan says he's happy to be back with the organization, and will do whatever he's asked.

Sloan coached the Jazz for 23 full seasons — leading the team to the playoffs 19 times and to the NBA Finals twice.

He resigned in February 2011 in the middle of a season in which he clashed with star point guard Deron Williams.
