CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan interviewed Friday for the Charlotte Bobcats vacant coaching job, according to a report in the Deseret News.

Sloan first told SI.com on Thursday that he plans to meet with Bobcats officials.

Sloan becomes the ninth known candidate, joining Patrick Ewing, Nate McMillan, Dave Joerger, Mike Malone, Nate Tibbetts, Mike Dunlap and Stephen Silas. The Bobcats also plan to interview Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw.

The Bobcats finished the season 7-59, the worst record in NBA history.
