Default Sixers hire Eddie Jordan as their new head coach



3yr deal, terms not yet disclosed. Announced during Phillies game.


Quote:
The 76ers' coaching search, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, is over. The Daily News has learned that the Sixers have offered the job to Eddie Jordan, the former Sacramento and Washington coach who interviewed twice for the position.

According to the source, nothing official has been signed but a contract is expected to be finalized possibly as soon as Saturday.

It is believed that Jordan will bring longtime aide Mike O'Koren as an assistant. There is also reason to believe that current Sixers assistant Aaron McKie will have a role.

Neither Jordan nor Dwane Casey, the Dallas assistant who also went through two interviews, was available for comment.

Ed Stefanski, the Sixers' president/general manager, has been in Chicago at the NBA predraft combine. He has made it a policy not to comment on any details of his search for a replacement for Tony DiLeo.

DiLeo took over in mid-stream after the firing of Maurice Cheeks during the season. DiLeo, though, removed his name from consideration to continue in the job, instead agreeing to resume his duties as senior vice-president/assistant general manager. He did not have a separate contract to coach.

No details are available about the terms of a Sixers deal with Jordan. Cheeks, though, remains under contract for the 2009-10 season and is owed an estimated $3 million.

Jordan has a year remaining on his contract with the Wizards; he was fired with a 1-10 record this season. He took them to the playoffs four times in his five-plus seasons, leaving with a record of 197-224. Overall, he is 230-288, with an 8-18 record in the playoffs.

When Stefanski began his search he said it was not necessarily important for him to have a history with a candidate, but in this case he does. Jordan was the lead assistant with New Jersey for four seasons when Stefanski was an executive with that franchise. The Nets went to the Finals twice during that time, in 2002 and '03.

Jordan, 54, had also interviewed for the vacant Kings job. He spent more than three hours with Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof and president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie May 12. After that meeting, Petrie was quoted as saying, in part, ''He displayed some very interesting insights in his analysis of our current roster. We also talked about6 his development as a coach over the years, and he provided his thoughts on how a young Washington Wizards team improved during his tenure into a team that made the playoffs in four out of his five full seasons there.''

When the Wizards picked up an option on Jordan's contract in September, 2008, team president Ernie Grunfeld said "Eddie has done an outstanding job and has been instrumental in making us a perennial playoff team.'' The Wizards, though, were riddled by injuries, including losing star guard Gilbert Arenas for virtually the entire season.

Jordan played at Rutgers, helping lead the Scarlet Knights to the NCAA Final 4 in 1976. He left school as their career leader in aqssists and steals, aqnd became a second-round draft choice of Cleveland in '77. He was later a member of the 1982 Lakers that won the NBA championship.

In his seven seasons as a player, he averaged 8.1 points, 3.8 assists and 1.82 steals

He has ties with Ed Stefanski. Led Wizs to 4 straight 40+ win seasons.

That doesnt even make sense if true.

Apparently he thinks he's on Phil Jackson's level. He wants to be the #1 sought after guy.

Here's the source: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/d...e_Part_II.html

"It has also been confirmed that the Sixers connected with former Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson, but that Johnson has no desire to be part of a coaching search, preferring to be the only sought-after candidate of his next employer."

Great choice. Already a pretty good team defensively but he will help them even more, and will definitely help them execute in the half court. I can see them winning 50 games next year healthy and Andre Miller resigning.

Eddie Jordan is far from a defensive coach. Not sure how he helps them.

Can't say I'm surprised. Does this mean they'll be playing half-court ball?
