RUTGERS INTRODUCED Eddie Jordan as its new men's basketball coach Tuesday, turning to a name from the school's past as it seeks to move forward from a scandal that forced the firing of coach Mike Rice and the resignation of athletic director Tim Pernetti.

He was the Sixers' head coach for the 2009-10 season.

Eddie Jordan had a shot at becoming head coach of the 76ers. He liked that Philadelphia wasn't too far from his New Jersey home and that the Sixers could contend right away. Instead, Jordan took the job as head coach of the Washington Wizards, a rebuilding team that experts insist has little chance of making the playoffs. Jordan, an assistant with the New Jersey Nets for four seasons, interviewed with Sixers president and general manager Billy King on June 17. The next day, he met with Abe Pollin, the owner of the Wizards.

According to a source who has spoken recently with Eddie Jordan and Doug Collins, both would be interested in becoming the next coach of the 76ers, a job made available yesterday when Tony DiLeo removed his name from consideration. Jordan is interviewing for the Sacramento Kings' vacancy today and tomorrow in Las Vegas, but the source, who confirmed Jordan's close relationship with Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski, said Jordan would be drawn to the Sixers' job because of the team's ability to contend.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - It is a marriage made somewhere south of heaven, miles closer to the hell that Rutgers University has been through this year. That explains the standing ovation Eddie Jordan received when he was introduced at a Tuesday afternoon news conference in the Barn - the very gym where he played for the Scarlet Knights in the mid-1970s. It also explains the nagging feeling that the ovation was the biggest cheer Jordan will get on a basketball court anytime soon. Maybe that's not fair.

When he wasn't talking about the challenges of his golf swing yesterday, former Sixer Charles Barkley was only too eager to give his opinion on which direction the team should go in its search for a new head coach. "I think Eddie Jordan would be a fine choice," he said. "They're going to have a good, solid team. They're pretty much stuck with the team they've got for the next few years, because they're paying [some] guys so much money. I think he's a helluva coach. He did a good job with Washington.

Rutgers has its sights set on hiring former 76ers coach Eddie Jordan soon for its vacant head coaching position and will interview the former Scarlet Knight this weekend, according to multiple reports. Jordan, who helped lead Rutgers to the Final Four in 1976, told the Times of Trenton: "I believe it makes complete sense for me to be the next Rutgers coach. " The seven-year NBA player, now an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers, coached the 76ers to a 27-55 record in 2009-10.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Maybe there's a job out there too big for Fran McCaffery. Maybe Kentucky? The Lakers? The current Sixers? Whatever that job is, McCaffery hasn't been offered it yet. His 15-3 Iowa Hawkeyes, still undefeated in the Big Ten, have hit the top 10 of the national rankings - the kind of progression you can believe if you've followed the career of a coach who grew up in West Oak Lane. McCaffery's three previous head coaching stops, at Lehigh, UNC-Greensboro, and Siena, all resulted in NCAA appearances for those schools.

The definitive highlight for the Rutgers basketball program last season came on Jan. 11, 2015, when the Scarlet Knights knocked off Wisconsin, an eventual Final Four team, by 67-62 in Piscataway to even their record to 2-2 in their inaugural season in the Big Ten. Alas, that also was the most recent highlight. The Scarlet Knights have gone more than a year without winning a conference game - 20 consecutive defeats. They slipped to 0-5 in the Big Ten on Wednesday after losing at Ohio State, 94-68, a game they actually led at the half.

IT IS NO surprise that defending national champion Louisville was picked to win the inaugural season of the American Athletic Conference. The Cardinals return three starters from a team that won the rigorous Big East Tournament before hoisting the national championship trophy in Atlanta last April. All of the teams, including the Temple Owls, realize the task at hand in the newly aligned AAC. The Cardinals head up a strong conference, but are clearly the team to beat - that is, until they bolt for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.
