UWM Men's Basketball Coach Jordan Leaves For Butler

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  U-W Milwaukee men’s basketball coach LaVall Jordan is leaving after just one season with the Panthers. He’ll become the next coach at Butler, after Chris Holtmann left last week to take an opening at Ohio State. It’s like home for the 38-year-old Jordan, who played guard at Butler from 1998 through 2001 — and was on the Bulldogs’ coaching staff for four seasons ending in 2007. Athletic director Amanda Braun says she understands why Jordan wanted to take the Butler opportunity — but it leaves Milwaukee to search for its third men’s coach in the last three seasons after Rob Jeter was fired last year. That resulted in Milwaukee’s top three scorers leaving, as Milwaukee went 8-23 for Jordan this past season and 4-14 in the Horizon League.
