Former Michigan men’s basketball assistant coach Luke Yaklich is officially headed to Texas.

On Friday, the University of Texas announced that Yaklich would be the Longhorns’ coaching staff ahead of the 2019-20 season. It was reported that he had met with head coach Shaka Smart about a spot on the bench in Austin.

The official announcement comes a day after Michigan officially introduced Juwan Howard as the new head coach. He replaces John Beilein, who took an offer to become the next head coach of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I’m extremely excited about Luke joining our staff,” Smart said in a statement. “He has tremendous passion for teaching the game and helping student-athletes move forward as people and players.”

Yaklich will be the associate head coach at Texas after spending two seasons with the Wolverines. Prior to joining Beilein’s staff in Ann Arbor, Yaklich was an assistant coach at Illinois State for six seasons.

Texas finished the 2018-19 campaign with a 21-16 record and were the champions of the NIT.
