Eddie Jordan Surfaces

Eddie Jordan visits Charlotte practice.

Eddie Jordan Surfaces

Eddie Jordan, the deposed coach of the 76ers, surfaced today at the Charlotte Bobcats' training camp practice.

This would appear to be Jordan's first public appearance since being fired by the Sixers at the end of last season, although he was interviewed for the then-open coaching job at Rutgers.

The Sixers were 27-55 in Jordan's only season. He left with two remaining guaranteed seasons on his contract, believed to be worth a total of $6 million.

His attempt to effectively install the Princeton offense just never worked.

He has been succeeded by Doug Collins, who directed his first Sixers practice this morning at Saint Joseph's University.

Jordan and former Atlanta Hawks' coach Mike Woodson watched the Bobcats' morning session directed by Larry Brown.
