The guy STILL is tainted by a Ohio State sexual conduct scandal back in the late 80’s and early 1990’s….

Jordan was publicly accused in July of inaction at Ohio State while the team doctor sexually abused dozens of athletes in the late 1980s and early ’90s. At least 145 people have accused Dr. Richard Strauss, who died by suicide in 2005, of sexual assault.

Jordan was on the defensive right up until Election Day. In August, it was reported that an ex-coach asked Jordan’s accusers to walk back their accusations just a day after they went public. Russ Hellickson reportedly sent messages to at least two former wrestlers, including Yetts, offering to rewrite their stories…..
