The Milwaukee Panthers just recently fired head coach Rob Jeter after 11 seasons with the team. They finished 20-13 this season and missed the NCAA Tournament and now they are looking to get back on track by hiring Michigan assistant LaVall Jordan.
Jordan has worked under John Beilein for the last six seasons, mostly handling recruiting duties and working with guards. ESPN’s Jeff Goodman first broke the news Thursday morning.

Jordan is no stranger to the NCAA Tournament. He helped lead the Wolverines to five NCAA Tournament appearances in his six seasons, including a 2013 Final Four appearance and a 2014 Elite Eight appearance.
Before Michigan, LaVall Jordan spent three seasons at Iowa from 2007-2010 and four years at his alma mater, Butler, from 2003-2007. He helped the Bulldogs win a share of the Horizon League championship and a Sweet Sixteen appearance in his final year at the school.
Jordan has some big expectations to live up to as Jeter left with a 184-170 record and three Horizon League championships.
