Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan to be hired by 76ers
According to a report by the Philadelphia daily news, the Philadelphia 76er's have chosen Eddie Jordan to be their new head coach. Jordan, who coached the Wizards from 2003 to 2008, led the Wizards to four straight playoff appearances during his stint in D.C. Despite his success, Jordan was fired, and subsequently replaced by interim head coach Ed Tapscott, after starting the 2008 season with a dismal 1-10 record.
