Former Navy Wideout, HS Coach Charged With Sexual Assault

Former Navy Midshipman Wide Receiver and current Steinert High School (Hamilton, NJ) football coach was arrested Friday and charged with fourth degree criminal sexual contact.

The details of the incident seem a little shady, but authorities apparently found enough evidence to charge the former naval officer.
The official police statement did not describe the nature of the alleged offense; however, law enforcement sources said the alleged contact took place between Jordan and a female student. The female student was said to be bothering another girl, who may have been at the school for Take Your Child to Work Day. Jordan may have pulled the allegedly harassing female student from behind to restrain her, sources said.
Jordan played during the 1987-88 seasons and was Navy's leading receiver in '88.

Without knowing full details, this seems like an unfortunate case that doesn't seem to have been intentional. Hopefully he'll be cleared of wrong doing.

Had this been Bo Kunkle, we'd have had a different assumption.
