This is like the 20th school Jeff Jordan has left, but I don’t think he needs that degree.

Jeff Jordan announced in a UCF athletics news release issued late Saturday he is leaving the program.

I will not be returning to the UCF basketball team this semester due to personal reasons,” Jeff Jordan said in the news release. “I thank coach Jones for the opportunity to be a part of the UCF basketball family. I wish the team and coaching staff much continued success.”

Jeff Jordan began his career as a walk-on at Illinois, earning a scholarship thanks to his strong defensive play and poise leading the team’s offense. He transferred to UCF last year.
