Coach Eddie Jordan may want to start working on his post-game plan since he’s getting cut from the 76ers.
The Associated Press reports that the Philadelphia 76ers fired Eddie as coach today after just one season heading the team. Team president Ed Stefanski said the team definitely downgraded under Eddie.
"What I thought would happen did not occur," said Stefanski. "The decision was not the right one."
The 76ers made it to the playoffs for two straight seasons before Jordan took control of the team last May, pushing his Princeton offense. This season, the team nearly fell to the bottom of the ranks in the Eastern Conference.
This dismissal means that the Sixers will be hunting for their fourth coach in three seasons. However, they still have some unfinished business with Jordan, who has two years left on his contract with the team. And the Sixers still owe him $6 million.
