Candidate Breakdown: LaVall Jordan

John Beilein is off to Cleveland after 12 years as Michigan’s head coach and the search for his replacement is underway. 

Over the coming days, we’ll be evaluating the top candidates for the Michigan opening. We’ll dive into the résumés, analytics and everything in between in an attempt to understand each candidate. Our second profile takes a closer look at Butler head coach LaVall Jordan. 

Previously: Juwan Howard

When LaVall Jordan left Michigan in 2016, he was regarded as a potential successor to John Beilein. Jordan was at Michigan from 2010 through 2016 and was a key part of the movement that pushed Michigan from perennial bubble team to Final Four contender. After three years on his own as a head coach, two at Butler and one at Milwaukee, he’s linked with Michigan’s vacant head coaching role.
