Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan is back coaching — high school freshmen

Former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan has returned to coaching – though not how you would expect. Less than two years after he was fired by the Philadelphia 76ers, Jordan is coaching the freshman basketball team at his alma mater, Archbishop Carroll.

Jordan was the most successful Wizards coach in recent memory, leading the franchise to 197 wins and four playoff appearances before getting dismissed after a 1-10 start in 2008-09. He joined the 76ers the next season but lasted just one season before he was replaced by Doug Collins. Philadelphia is still owes Jordan $3 million this season.

Washington Post reporter Josh Barr wrote that Jordan would like to return to the NBA and has been invited to attend training camp with the San Antonio Spurs, but for now, he’ll work with the kids.
