Lakers Assistant Eddie Jordan Reportedly Offered Rutgers Job

According to Yahoo! Sports, Rutgers University wants Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Eddie Jordan to take over their bench. Jordan is mum about the story at the moment: “In the aftermath of the scandal surrounding former coaches physically abusing players in practices, Rutgers offered Jordan the job after University of Rhode Island coach Danny Hurley turned down an offer from the school earlier this week, sources said. Jordan will meet with Rutgers officials face-to-face, sources said, this weekend to try to finalize an agreement. A Rutgers alumnus, Jordan played for the school’s 1976 Final Four team and has strong backing from influential alumni and trustees, including NBA commissioner David Stern.”
