Jordan was part of an offensive staff that set more than 35 school records, including total points per game and total offense.

Before his stint with the Tar Heels, Jordan spent four seasons (2008-11) with Texas A&M in the same role. He was first named Running Backs coach at the University of Nebraska in 2004 where he stayed for four years (2004-07).
