Fagan: Eddie Jordan to be fired soon; Stefanski to be evaluated

Fagan writes ... 

Comcast-Spectacor is ready to fire 76ers coach Eddie Jordan, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.

Several other sources also indicated that the organization will "seriously evaluate" Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski, who hired Jordan less than a year ago.

One of these sources indicated that the company had considered terminating Jordan earlier, but likely was "deterred" by the early-season firing of former Flyers coach John Stevens.

Comcast-Spectacor owns both franchises.

These sources indicated that Jordan could be fired before this season ends - if it becomes obvious he has lost the team - but more likely after the final game of this dismal season.

One of these sources also characterized Comcast-Spectacor chairman Ed Snider as "up in arms" about Jordan's coaching effort, with another source with intimate knowledge of the management's thinking calling Jordan's coaching "baffling."

This is far from shocking, but it's great to hear. It doesn't sound like a matter of 'if' anymore, but a matter of 'when' or 'how soon'. It's also encouraging to hear that Stefanski isn't safe either.

And whether or not Snider was really "up in arms", the image of him throwing his arms up in the air, hurling a scotch glass across the room, and putting a cigar out on his newly-purchased swag brings a warm, fuzzy feeling to my heart.

It might be today, it might be tomorrow, it might be April 15, but a change is coming Sixers fans -- and that's something to get excited about!

In the meantime, let's milk EJ's abilities for all we can. Ping pong balls for everyone!
