Hall of Famer Jerry Sloan was introduced Thursday as a senior basketball adviser, an undefined role that allowed him to rejoin the Jazz after abruptly resigning as head coach in 2011 and paving the way for Corbin. "I wished I could have called him down to sit beside me at times," Corbin said, sitting beside his longtime mentor at the Jazz’s practice facility Thursday morning. The last time they shared the dais, Sloan’s eyes were red and he fought back tears. It was February 2011 and he announced his sudden departure from the team. Since then, he has been courted by nearly every team with a coaching vacancy. He said Thursday he always hoped that a new role with the Jazz would materialize." Salt Lake Tribune

Sloan, 71, maintains close relationships with Jazz management, making his return to the franchise this summer an easy transition even without an official position as consultant to this point. RealGM
