UIC hires former Texas, Michigan assistant Yaklich as coach

CHICAGO (AP) Illinois-Chicago hired former Texas and Michigan assistant Luke Yaklich as coach on Thursday.

The 43-year-old Yaklich grew up in Illinois, played at Illinois State and coached high school ball in the state before serving as an assistant at his alma mater from 2013-2017.

He spent two years on John Beilein's staff at Michigan, overseeing the defense as the Wolverines reached the 2018 NCAA championship game and got to the Sweet 16 in 2019. With Beilein taking the Cleveland Cavaliers job, Yaklich became associate head coach under Shaka Smart at Texas last season.
