The Charlotte Hornets have promoted Eddie Jordan to the role of an assistant coach while also elevating Stephen Silas to the position of associate head coach, the franchise formally announced. Jordan first got a coaching job in the NBA during the 1993-94 campaign, when he was hired as an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings. He served as an assistant for the Kings for most of four years before being promoted to head coach late in his fourth season. Jordan went 33-64 over parts of two seasons as Sacramento’s head coach. He then landed with the New Jersey Nets, where he was an assistant coach for five seasons. Jordan was a part of two Nets teams that went to the NBA Finals (2002, 2003) while Byron Scott was serving as head coach.
