76ers interview Jordan in coaching search

May 15, 2009 1:06:22 PM PDT
The Philadelphia 76ers have interviewed former NBA coach Eddie Jordan for their head coaching job. Jordan met with team president Ed Stefanski on Friday. It was Philadelphia's first interview with a candidate since Tony DiLeo stepped down as coach on Monday and returned to his job as a vice president and assistant general manager.

Stefanski and Jordan did not immediately return requests for comment.

Jordan was fired by the Washington Wizards in November and interviewed with the Sacramento Kings this week.

Philadelphia finished 41-41 this season and was 32-27 under DiLeo, who replaced the fired Maurice Cheeks.
