Jordan agrees to become Butler's next coach

Report Butler selects alumnus La Vall Jordan as new head basketball coach	 	 	 			La Vall Jordan

While it's a little confusing to see a guy with a.314 winning percentage in his one year as a head coach get bumped up to the majors like this, it's not a shock to see Butler keep things inside their family.

Jordan most recently served as head coach of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's basketball team.

"LaVall is a tremendous coach who exemplifies The Butler Way", said Collier, who as the team's head coach first recruited Jordan to Butler in 1997. In his first head coaching position, Jordan led the Panthers to the Horizon League Tournament championship game.

Butler has agreed to deal in principle with Milwaukee head coach LaVall Jordan, a source confirmed to ESPN. Butler Vice President and Director of Athletics Barry Collier made the announcement Monday, June 12. He played there from 1998-2001 and was a two-time All-Midwestern Collegiate Conference selection and left as the school's winningest player.

LaVall Jordan is getting another chance to make his imprint at Butler. In six years as a head coach, which includes three years at Gardner-Webb (44-54), his career record is 114-85.

Holtmann compiled a record of 70-31 in three seasons as Butler coach. Ironically, he also played one season under Thad Matta, who Holtmann replaced at OSU.

In three seasons with the Bulldogs, Holtmann took the program to the NCAA Tournament three different times, including a trip to the Sweet Sixteen this past season.

Jordan came to Milwaukee after Rob Jeter was relieved from his duties.

Panthers athletic director Amanda Braun said the search for Jordan's successor will begin immediately. MI made five NCAA Tournaments during his tenure. "We are confident we will continue to build on his success and look forward to the future".
