Rutgers University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Patrick Hobbs announced today that Eddie Jordan has been dismissed as head men’s basketball coach.

“I have decided that we need new leadership for our men’s basketball program,” said Hobbs. “Rutgers University is deeply appreciative of Coach Jordan’s efforts these past three years. He is and will always remain a valued member of the Rutgers Community.”

Named the 18th head coach in the history of Rutgers men’s basketball on April 23, 2013, Jordan compiled 29-68 record in three seasons. He directed RU to a 5-13 conference mark in The American in 2013-14, before leading Rutgers to 2-16 and 1-17 league marks in the Big Ten in 2014-15 and 2015-16, respectively. Overall, his conference record was 8-46.

A national search for Jordan’s replacement will begin immediately.
