Marcus Jordan Will Not Play Basketball During His Senior Year At UCF

Marcus Jordan has decided not to return for his senior season at UCF according to a report in the Chicago Tribune. Marcus is the youngest son of NBA legend Michael Jordan, the current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.

This is the second time that Marcus Jordan has made headlines this summer. In July he was arrested at an Embassy Suites hotel in Omaha, Ne. and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing officers after an altercation with two women and hotel security,

The Knights basketball program -- along with the football program -- was cited with "lack of institutional control" and the NCAA hit each program with a one-year postseason ban in late July and Jordan had long been rumored not be returning to play basketball for a variety of reasons:

Jordan's older brother, Jeff Jordan, and best friend, A.J. Rompza, are no longer with the basketball program and are pursuing their own post-college opportunities.

Jordan has a variety of interests beyond basketball and may pursue business opportunities that would jeopardize his NCAA eligibility.
