Sixers hired Eddie Jordan as their next head coach. This is no surprise, because he is Stefanski's boy from their days at the Nets. Eddie Jordan has a head coaching record of 230-288 (Sacramento and Washington).
"I saw firsthand the immense impact Eddie Jordan had in helping the Nets reach two NBA Finals and as the head coach in Washington he consistently put his teams in a position to win on a nightly basis," Stefanski said Friday night. "He embodies all the qualities I was looking for in the next head coach of the Sixers and we are very excited to have him in Philadelphia."
It has been rumored that Jordan signed a multi-year deal worth about 4 million per season. The Sixers will have a news conference to announce Jordan as the next head coach sometime on Monday.
