Michigan assistant coaches LaVall Jordan, Bacari Alexander and Jeff Meyer all signed ‘multi-year extensions with improved compensation’ according to a report from MLive’s Brendan Quinn.

According to U-M athletic director Dave Brandon, assistants Bacari Alexander, LaVall Jordan and Jeff Meyer have “agreed to multi-year extensions with improved compensations — much deserved improvements in their compensations.”

Michigan associate athletic director for media and public relations Dave Ablauf told MLive all three contracts are four-year extensions running through the 2017-18 season.

All terms of the contracts were not immediately available.

While Jordan had one year remaining on an existing contract paying $185,000 in 2014-15, Alexander and Meyer each had two years left on their deals, paying $165,000 and $170,000, respectively.

“They’ve all made a commitment to Michigan and extended their commitment to Michigan,” Brandon told MLive on Thursday. “It was a great process with all three of those guys.”

    Well deserved.

    Congrats to all three – well deserved. Integral parts of the new winning tradition of Michigan Basketball. This is huge for the organization

    Well deserved to all. Obviously the head coach has a very large part, but the right support from the assistant coaches and the athletic department matter a great deal as well.

    This is great for UM basketball to keep consistency and keep great coaches. I do think one of the assistants will get a head coaching job before their new 4 year contract expires though.

    All very well deserved. Important offseason move. Of course, we can’t be naive — a couple will be head coaches in the near future.
