Washington Wizards Fire Eddie Jordan

The Washington Wizards have fired Coach Eddie Jordan. Jordan was informed of the decision this morning, according to the Washington Post.

Ed Tapscott, who had carried the title of Director of Player Development but traveled with the team and essentially served as an extra assistant coach, will take over coaching duties, starting with a practice that will begin today at 11 a.m.
