Baldwin hired as Milwaukee's men's basketball coach
MILWAUKEE (AP) Patrick Baldwin is the new men's basketball coach at Milwaukee.
Baldwin takes the job left open when Lavall Jordan became the coach at Butler. The 44-year-old Baldwin will be the third basketball coach in three seasons at Milwaukee.
It's the first head coaching job for Baldwin, who was a top assistant at Northwestern. His first Division 1 coaching job was as a member of Tod Kowalczyk's staff at Green Bay from 2002-2004.
The Panthers struggled in the regular season, but managed to knock off Detroit in the first round of the Horizon League Tournament, then go on to upset second-seeded Valparaiso and sixth-seeded Illinois-Chicago to reach the final.
