Jordan reportedly pulls out of Rutgers running

UPDATE: Eddie Jordan has apparently informed Rutgers that he is not interested in the job and withdrawn from consideration, two sources told the Newark Star-Ledger.

Jordan told Rutgers that he still wanted to pursue opportunities in the NBA, rather than going into college basketball.



Former Sixers coach Eddie Jordan is interviewing today with his alma mater, Rutgers, according to a report by Gannett New Jersey.

The report says the interview is taking place in the Philadelphia area and that Jordan appears to be the favorite, according to a source.

A decision could be made as early as Thursday, a source told the newspaper.

Jordan was fired after one disastrous 27-55 season with the Sixers and is owed $3 million for each of the next 2 years.

Jordan is a Rutgers legend as a player, leading the Scarlet Knights to the 1976 Final Four. He is the school's career leader in assists and steals and is seventh in scoring.

Rutgers is looking for a coach after former Villanova assistant Fred Hill resigned last week.
