Hoops Coach Eddie Jordan Excited By New Athletic Director Patrick Hobbs

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers basketball coach Eddie Jordan is excited by new athletic director Pat Hobbs. He discussed it Monday after a 69-68 loss to Wake Forest.

Patrick Hobbs comes from a basketball background and that is enough cause for excitment with head coach Eddie Jordan. Jordan reacted to the change in leadership Monday with two brief comments on Hobbs.

"He wants us to win," Jordan said. "That's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to impress [upon] him that we're doing things right. We had a great talk today with him, with the whole staff, and he seems to be a terrific guy. At least he's in my generation. He's not a young buck who's trying to make changes. He's an established generational guy like me. He understands what it takes. He understands resources are imperative to grow."
