Jordan will not be one of Ohio State’s 10 full-time assistant coaches.
Jordan was a receiver at Ohio State from 2003-05 but his career was derailed by an injury that occurred in practice in 2004, per Eleven Warriors.
Since his playing career, Jordan has remained involved in football in the coaching ranks. He’s had stops at Wittenberg, Otterbein, Malone, Youngstown State and Akron.
Jordan spent the past two years as an offensive quality control analyst with the Zips.
