 NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells the Associated Press that Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan has reached a tentative agreement to take over as coach at Rutgers.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school has not officially announced the deal, but said the two sides hammered out the five-year contract over the past 12 hours. It needs to be reviewed by the university's board of governors, and an official press conference might not happen until next Tuesday.
The agreement comes just more than two weeks after Rutgers fired Mike Rice after a video was aired that showed him grabbing and kicking players at practice, and using anti-gay slurs. The video was compiled from recordings taken during Rice's three years as coach.
Athletic director Tim Pernetti, a university lawyer and assistant coach Jimmy Martelli also resigned amid the scandal.
Jordan played for the Scarlet Knights from 1973-77, and is the school's all-time leader in assists and steals.
