Haden brothers continuing careers at Toledo

Former Florida Gators cornerback Joe Haden‘s two brothers – Jordan and Josh – have decided to play football next year for the Toledo Rockets rather than in Gainesville, FL as initially planned.

Safety Jordan Haden was a member of Florida’s heralded 2010 recruiting class but decided to transfer in August after finding that the Gators were not a good fit for him.

Running back Josh Haden, who transferred out of Boston College last year, was expected to become the next member of his family to wear the orange and blue with a plan to join the team in January.

Toledo head coach Tim Beckman was the defensive coordinator and assistant head coach at Bowing Green under former Gators head coach Urban Meyer from 2001-02. The school is also just over 100 miles away from where Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden plays professionally.

    Well best of luck to them both. Much rather live in Gainesville than Toledo (and I have lived in both) but I also would rather start for the Rockets rather than sit the bench my whole career for the Gators and that is what was going to happen. now they can watch Joe play on Sundays sometimes.

    I thought Jordan went to Maryland – was that false?
