The Milwaukee Bucks are seriously considering hiring former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan as their next coach, USA Today Sports reported.
Sloan, 71, has met with Bucks officials about their coaching vacancy.
Sloan has not coached since resigning from the Jazz in February 2011 after 23 seasons.
He turned down an offer from the Portland Trail Blazers last year, and he was a candidate for the Charlotte Bobcats job before removing himself from consideration.
The Bucks are searching for a successor to Jim Boylan, who was not retained after Milwaukee was swept by Miami in the first round of the playoffs.
