Freshman guard Marcus Jordan is refusing to wear shoes made by adidas, the brand the university has a contract with for all its sports. He says he will only wear his father's Nike Air Jordan shoes because it holds special meaning to his family.
The problem is UCF has a $3 million, six-year contract with adidas that requires coaches and athletes to use the company's apparel and equipment.
UCF said in a statement Thursday that adidas was aware of the situation during contract renewal discussions. The university says it is working with adidas ``in determining how this unique set of circumstances will work for both parties.''
