Mitch Gilfillan will be joining the Illinois State men’s basketball team as the Director of Basketball Operations, head coach Dan Muller announced.
Gilfillan’s previous experience includes four years as the NCAA Division I assistant coach, one year as a director of operations and four years as a student-athlete.
“My family and I are ecstatic to be at Illinois State working with Coach Muller and his staff,” Gilfillan said. “The mindset, culture and vision at ISU are at a champion-caliber level. In addition, Coach Muller is one of the elite young head coaches in the country and he knows I appreciate the opportunity.”
As an assistant coach at Southern Illinois, Gilfillan helped the Cougars qualify for their first-ever Ohio Valley Conference Tournament.
Gilfillan hopes to continue the success he found with his previous teams when he joins the Redbird organization.
