Reports: Ex-UM assistant Jordan lands Butler job

Butler follows a familiar pattern in hiring LaVall Jordan as head coach

Now, after only one season at Milwaukee, Jordan appears headed to Butler, one of the most-coveted jobs in college basketball.

Butler will hire Milwaukee coach and former Bulldog star LaVall Jordan to be their next men's basketball coach, barring a breakdown in negotiations, a source told Scout.

Although there was a gap between his time with the Bulldogs to now, Jordan will follow in the tradition of head coaches starting as assistants within the program. Milwaukee went 11-24 in Jordan's only year, and finished 10th in the Horizon League with a 4-14 record.

Jordan, 38, is the fourth men's coach in six seasons at Butler, whose previous head coaching replacements were all on the staff when hired. If Jordan can mix The Butler Way with Michigan-type recruiting in Indianapolis, then the Bulldogs are going to be a force to be reckoned with as long as Jordan is patrolling the sidelines. Collier added "he has played a major role in successful programs that have competed at the highest levels". He calls it "a dream come true" to return to his alma mater and says "Butler is a place that means so much to me and my family, and I am honored and humbled to lead this storied program". First off, he's a Butler alum. Celtics assistant Micah Shrewsbury, who worked on Stevens' staff at Butler, also was reportedly under consideration. Ironically, he also played one season under Thad Matta, who Holtmann replaced at OSU. It might make the most sense to promote an assistant as an interim head coach until next offseason, but right now there isn't a clear course of action for the decision makers in the Milwaukee athletic department. "We are confident we will continue to build on his success and look forward to the future".
