Eddie Jordan Uninterested In Ever Returning To NBA As Head Coach
Eddie Jordan was hired as head coach of Rutgers this offseason, an opportunity he prefers rather than returning to the NBA in a top job.
“After my last few experiences, I did not want to be a head coach in the NBA,” Jordan said.
Jordan led the Washington Wizards to the playoffs in every season between 2005 and 2008. Jordan even coached the Eastern Conference All-Stars in 2007 when the Wizards had the best record in the conference.
Jordan was fired by the Wizards at the beginning of the 08-09 season after a 1-10 start, and was hired the next season by the Philadelphia 76ers.
Jordan most recently was an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers after being hired by Mike Brown.
