Who are the candidates to replace Chris Holtmann at Butler?--College Basketball Talk
So who will Butler target this time around?
Lavall Jordan, Milwaukee: Jordan is a Butler grad that spent three years as an assistant with the Bulldogs before following Lickliter to Iowa. He spent six years on John Beilein’s staff with Michigan before taking over at Milwaukee this past season. The Panthers went just 11-24 this season, but they came within one game of reaching the NCAA tournament as they advanced to the Horizon League title game.

LaVall Jordan, Milwaukee

Jordan came close to getting the job in 2013, when he was an assistant coach coming off a national title game appearance with Michigan. Jordan has an appealing personality and has experience at Butler as both a player and assistant coach. He spent three seasons on Lickliter’s staff, not long after completing his Bulldogs playing career. Jordan got the head coaching job at Milwaukee in advance of the 2016-17 season; he hasn’t had sufficient time to rebuild the program entirely, but Jordan did inspire them to reach the Horizon League championship game despite a 4-14 regular season. He certainly is better prepared for the job now than four years ago.

Butler coaching candidates: With Chris Holtmann off to Ohio State, who will replace him?--CBS Sports
Milwaukee coach LaVall Jordan: Nearly got the job four years ago when Brandon Miller was hired. Jordan, 38, is a former Butler assistant who just completed his first season as the coach at Milwaukee (11-24 record in 2016-17). Those in the business believe Jordan has a very realistic chance at being a true finalist for the job if he wants it (he should).
