According to multiple reports, Texas associate head coach Luke Yaklich will be named as the next head coach at UIC.
Last season was Yaklich’s first at Texas after a two year stint at Michigan. Prior to his time at UM, Yaklich spent four seasons as an assistant at Illinois State.
Before joining the college ranks, Yaklich worked as a high school head coach and teacher for 14 years, primarily teaching U.S. history at the high school level. He was head boys’ basketball coach at Joliet Township High School (Joliet, Ill.) for six seasons, three in the combined Joliet Township program and three at Joliet West), while also coaching the Joliet Pride and Illinois Wolves AAU teams.
More on this when it becomes official.
