Milwaukee has hired Michigan LaVall Jordan, sources told ESPN.
UWM is not confirming the report at this time.
The Panthers fired head coach Rob Jeter last month after his team failed to make a postseason tournament, despite winning 20 games.
His Panthers twice made the NCAA tournament in his 11 years at the mid-major school.
Jordan has been part of five straight Michigan teams that have made the NCAA Tournament, including a 2013 Final Four trip.
He previously was an assistant at Butler (his alma mater, 2003-07) and Iowa (2007-10). While playing at Butler, he helped the Bulldogs make the NCAA Tournament three times.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
