Tim Jordan, the Savannah basketball coach who has led his team to the state finals the past two seasons, is now the school’s football coach, too.
Jordan was hired to take over the football team on an interim basis to replace David Jackson, who resigned earlier this year after three seasons. Savannah’s football team last had a winning season in 1995 (7-4). The team’s 4-6 finish in 2012 was its best since 2001.
Savannah’s basketball teams are another story.
Jordan has led the Blue Jackets to six final-four appearances and a state championship in 1998. They lost to Johnson of Savannah in the 2013 Class AAA final and to Milton in the 2012 AAAA final.
Jordan has worked for Chatham County schools for 28 years. He was recruited to Savannah State to play wide receiver out of high school.
