Rutgers Alum Eddie Jordan a Leading Head Coach Candidate

iR  
UPDATE:   

Former NBA head coach and current Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan is reportedly a leading candidate for the Rutgers head coaching vacancy following the Mike Rice firing and player abuse scandal. Jordan is a Rutgers graduate and has been the coach of 3 NBA teams, the Philadelphia 76ers, Washington Wizards, and Sacramento Kings.

ANALYSIS:

After New Jersey native and current Rhode Island head coach Danny Hurley turned down a 5-year deal worth $1 million annually this week, Rutgers will likely meet with Jordan over the weekend.
