BREAKING: Rutgers fires head basketball coach Eddie Jordan
The head coach was dismissed after a disappointing season
After a rough season, Rutgers has fired Men’s basketball coach Eddie Jordan. NorthJersey.com reported earlier today Jordan was let go after a disappointing season that ended with a 7-25 record.
The Scarlet Knights hit a school record of 17 straight losses this year.
Jordan was appointed as head coach back in April 2013 when then-head coach Mike Rice was fired after videos surfaced of Rice verbally abusing the players.
Jordan will receive a $2.065 million buyout for his five-year contract.
Despite previously serving as NBA head coach for the Philadelphia 76ers and the Washington Wizards, this was Jordan’s first position as a college head coach.
