|Illinois State Hires Vandy Assistant Muller
|NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois State has hired longtime Vanderbilt assistant Dan Muller, a former Illinois State player, to be its next men's basketball coach.
The school announced that it will hold a news conference on Tuesday to introduce Muller as the program's 19th coach.
Muller played at Illinois State under current Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stalling from 1995-98 and has been part of his staff in Nashville, Tenn., since 2000.
Muller replaced Tim Jankovich, who left last month after five seasons to join Larry Brown's staff at SMU.
