Jordan, 58, played at the school from 1973-77 and was a second-round pick in the NBA Draft. He was also a volunteer assistant at Rutgers after he retired in 1984 and was an assistant under Bob Wenzel from 1988-91.
Jordan was the head coach at three different stops -- Sacramento, Washington and Philadelphia -- and compiled a 257-343 career mark. He is now an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Jordan would replace Mike Rice -- who was fired shortly after ESPN aired video of his poor treatment of players.
