Assistant Coaching Search: LaVall Jordan

Former Iowa assistant coach LaVall Jordan appears to be the front runner to fill Mike Jackson’s vacated assistant coaching position.
  • Most expect Michigan to move forward quickly with their assistant coaching search and it appears that they will. I’m hearing that former Iowa assistant LaVall Jordan will be the guy and it wouldn’t be surprising for this to be announced shortly. LaVall Jordan was an assistant coach at Butler from 2004-07 before following Coach Lickliter to Iowa. Jordan was headed to Western Michigan but it appears he’s headed to Ann Arbor before he was even announced in Kalamazoo.  Bio here.
  • JaVontae Hawkins is scheduled to make an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor this Friday (June 11th) where he will discuss a June 15th offer with Beilein. Hawkins is also taking an unofficial to Michigan State today and will be participating in Michigan and Iowa State’s Elite Camps. We should have an update with Hawkins later this week.
  • It’s also worth noting that Travis Conlan’s name has been connected to Michigan’s open administrative assistant position
  • It should come as no surprise but student season tickets are down significantly with only 687 sold to returning students.
  • Manny Harris recently worked out with the Spurs.

    I think LaVall Jordan and Bacari Alexander would make a great tandem as coaches at UM. They are young and should have lots of energy on the recruiting trail. The only drawback is they will both have to be taught JB's system and learn it on the fly. Jordan would be great for coaching guards and Alexander will be great for the bigs. I think this would be a slam dunk replacement for Jackson.

    Someone on Scout.com posted that Lavall Jordan was hired as the assistant coach to replace Jackson last night.

    When I said that LaVall Jordan is the guy… I mean that he's the guy.

    Any way we can get Travis Conlan back in the program is a good thing, the man was a seriously underrated player. One of my all-time favorites.
