Milwaukee basketball coach leaving

LaVall Jordan was named head coach of men's basketball at Butler University Monday.

After just one year in the black and gold, LaVall Jordan is leaving Milwaukee to fill the vacant head coaching spot at Butler.

Unfortunately, these coaches continue to leave, causing Jordan to be the fourth head coach in a span of six seasons.

Butler has agreed to deal in principle with Milwaukee head coach LaVall Jordan, source told ESPN. Jordan, who inherited only four returning scholarship players when he took over the Panthers' program in April of 2016, finished 11-24 on the season.

After Lickliter's departure from Iowa, Jordan accepted an assistant coaching position under John Beilein at MI.

The Panthers did win three games in the Horizon League Tournament, knocking off seventh-seeded Detroit, second-seeded Valparaiso and sixth-seeded Illinois-Chicago to reach the title game. Butler Vice President and Director of Athletics Barry Collier made the announcement Monday, June 12.

He is married to Destinee, and the couple has three daughters.

Butler of the Big East Conference has made the NCAA Tournament seven of the last nine years, including two appearances in the national championship game.

Before joining the Wolverine program, Jordan spent three years at Iowa (2007-10) under Todd Lickliter. He also made coaching stops at Iowa and MI.

Jordan earned his bachelor's degree in journalism from Butler in 2001 and went on to play professional basketball in Europe.

In 2001, after being selected as the MVP of the Midwestern College Conference Tourney, he helped lead Butler to its first NCAA Tourney win in almost 40 years.
