Philadelphia 76ers coaching carousel continues; Jordan out after 1 season

compiled from staff and wire reports

The once-proud franchise of the Philadelphia 76ers that has Julius Erving, Maurice Cheeks, Billy Cunningham, Hal Greer, Allen Iverson, Charles Barkley, Wilt Chamberlain in its history, has now become the joke of the league because of its coaching carousel.

For example, current star player, Samuel Dalembert has seen it all in 10 years in Philly. His next coach will be his eighth.

Eddie Jordan (nba)

Eddie Jordan is the latest coach fired by an organization that can’t find the right mix of players and coaches to contend regularly for championships. Jordan who uses the much-maligned Princeton offense was given only one season to maike it work.

Since Larry Brown left in 2003, four other head coaches have failed to coach more than 82 games for the organization. Jordan’s dismissal means a second straight offseason of a coaching search.

With Jordan being ousted, all the heat and blame shifts to team president and general manager Ed Stefanski, who has yet to make a big move with a big payroll. The $80 million dollar contract he gave to free-agent Elton Brand in 2008 was a mistake and the $80 million to keep Andre Iguodala has not paid dividends in the standings. Jordan’s hire was disliked by fans and media from day one last May.

Jordan’s dismissal had been widely speculated for months as the players never warmed up to the Princeton offense.

Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young and Marreese Speights were among the promising core of young players who did not progress this season as the organization had expected. Brand hasn’t lived or played up to his contract, Dalembert was his usual erratic and inconsistent self and Iguodala continued to show he is not a franchise player.
