Multiple outlets are reporting that LaVall Jordan will be named as the next head basketball coach at Butler. He will replace Chris Holtmann who departed for Ohio State late last week.
Jordan, who spent last season as the head coach at Milwaukee, is a Butler alum (’01) and also worked as an assistant for the Bulldogs (2003-07). He played for current Butler AD Barry Collier, who was the head basketball coach at Butler from 1989-2000. Before becoming the head coach at Milwaukee, Jordan spent the previous six seasons as an assistant coach at University of Michigan under head coach John Beilein.
An official announcement is expected as early as tomorrow.
