Board of Governor's Meeting Scheduled Tuesday

The Rutgers Board of Governors will meet Tuesday afternoon in a special session to discuss the appointment of Eddie Jordan as Rutgers men's basketball coach.

The Rutgers Board of Governors meeting scheduled for Tuesday added the discussion of a new basketball coach it its agenda this morning. After Rutgers officials and Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan reached a contract agreement Thursday, Board of Governor approval is all that stands in the way of an official announcement.

Approval is not a concern, sources told

In an agenda built by president Robert Parchi and board chair Ralph Izzo, Jordan's contract will be the topic of discussion in a session recently scheduled for Tuesday morning.

The 2:30 p.m. meeting is partially open to the public and will include discussion regarding "Proposed Resolution on the Appointment of the Head Coach for Men's Basketball in the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics in New Brunswick," according to the Rutgers University Board of Governor's website.
