Jordan comes to UNC from Texas A&M, where he coached the Aggies’ running backs for the past four seasons. After graduating from UNC in 1993, Jordan spent nine seasons in the NFL and was the special teams captain for the Oakland Raiders team that reached Super Bowl XXXVII at the end of the 2002 season.
Jordan also scored the first touchdown in Jacksonville Jaguars history on a 71-yard touchdown catch. His hiring at UNC completes Larry Fedora's first staff of assistant coaches.
“I’m excited to bring Randy back to Chapel Hill,” Fedora said in a statement. “He has a tremendous background both as a player in the NFL and as a college assistant at Nebraska and Texas A&M. Randy is an enthusiastic coach who enjoys teaching and recruiting. He is a good fit for our coaching staff.”
Jordan began his coaching career with the Raiders as a special teams assistant midway through the 2003 season. He later spent four seasons as an assistant at Nebraska under former Raiders coach Bill Callahan.
