The Philadelphia 76ers have an agreement in principle with Eddie Jordan to become their next head coach.
A person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press that Jordan was offered the job on Friday and has an agreement to coach the team. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement has not been made. The person said the Sixers have scheduled a news conference for Monday.
Jordan, fired by the Washington Wizards in November, interviewed twice with Sixers president Ed Stefanski.
