Head men’s basketball coach Dan Muller ’98 has agreed to a contract extension that keeps him at Illinois State at least through the 2023–2024 season.
“I’ve always felt incredibly blessed and honored to have the responsibility of holding the title of head coach here at my alma mater,” said Muller, who was the Missouri Valley Coach of the Year in 2017.
Athletics Director Larry Lyons said the contract extension “reflects the strength of our men’s basketball program under Dan’s leadership, and our mutual desire for long-term stability.” Muller’s success in leading the team resulted in the Redbirds capturing a share of the MVC regular-season title in the 2016–2017 season.
“I am humbled by the support shown by President Larry Dietz and Larry Lyons,” Muller said. “I look forward to continuing to work with my staff and my players to help represent Illinois State the right way, earn degrees and win championships.”
