Jordan brushes off speculation about future
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - March 10, 2010 -- Philadelphia 76ers coach Eddie Jordan says he's not worried about a newspaper report stating he could be fired soon.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, citing unidentified sources, reported on Tuesday that Comcast-Spectator was ready to fire Jordan, likely after his first season with the team is complete.
The 76ers are 23-40 heading into Wednesday night's game against Charlotte, 8½ games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Jordan signed a four-year contract when he was hired. He said of the speculation, "that if you know how to handle it, then it won't bother you."
Jordan says he hasn't approached his bosses regarding the report.
