Less than two years after he was fired by the Philadelphia 76ers, Jordan is coaching the freshman basketball team at his alma mater, Archbishop Carroll.

He joined the 76ers the next season but lasted just one season before he was replaced by Doug Collins. Philadelphia is still owes Jordan $3 million this season. Read full article >>

When an NBA coach gets fired, he has several obvious options: become an assistant, get a TV job, and hope someone thinks you got a bad deal and hires you immediately.

New amnesty details will not affect Wizards’ plans
