Butler Names Thad Matta New Head Coach

Thad Matta is back in coaching -- and back at Butler.

The Bulldogs announced Sunday they were hiring Matta as their next head coach.

Matta, who spent the last year as an associate athletic director at Indiana, replaces LaVall Jordan, who was fired Friday after five seasons as Butler's head coach.

"The success that Thad has achieved at every one of his programs speaks for itself," athletic director Barry Collier said. "He is a championship-caliber coach and recruiter who brings valuable experience and contagious energy to Butler. I have seen that personally in Thad as a player, assistant coach and head coach. The Matta Family -- Thad, Barb, Ali and Emily -- has a deep appreciation for Butler and I know they join all of the Butler community in how excited we are for what's to come."
