  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 10, 2013) – While Rutgers was in error when it reported that Eddie Jordan had earned a degree from Rutgers University, neither Rutgers nor the NCAA requires a head coach to hold a baccalaureate degree.  Eddie Jordan was a four-year letterman and was inducted into the Rutgers Athletics Hall of Fame in 1980.  Rutgers sought Eddie for the head coach position as a target-of-opportunity hire based on his remarkable public career.

    Eddie Jordan was inducted into the Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 2004 and he has been a part of the Rutgers family since before 1977.

    His athletic skills and leadership and his professional accomplishments have been a source of pride for Rutgers for more than three decades.  We are excited to have him as our men’s basketball coach, and we look forward to many winning seasons.
