Rutgers Sets Sight On Lakers Assistant Coach Eddie Jordan To Lead Basketball Program

In an effort to put an end to the debacle of the Mike Rice era, Rutgers University has offered their head coaching position to current Lakers assistant coach and RU alum, Eddie Jordan.


From NBC Sports:

Eddie Jordan, the current Lakers assistant coach who the franchise brought in to help set up a hybrid Princeton offense (a plan Kobe Bryant asked for then the team ditched five games into the season), could be the new head man at Rutgers.

Most of all, this is smart because the Princeton offense is a good fit at a school like Rutgers. It’s great to run the dribble drive motion offense of Kentucky when you have that kind of elite talent every year. But that’s not the guys you can recruit to Rutgers (no offense).
