Brendan Mullins

Illinois State men's basketball head coach Dan Muller completed his assistant coaching staff Friday by announcing the hire of former University of Illinois-Chicago assistant, Brendan Mullins. 

Mullins played four years at St. Michael's in Vermont and ranks fifth in program history with 200 career 3-pointers. He is excited to make the transition from the Chicago suburban area to Normal. 

"I'm thankful and excited for the opportunity to join Coach Muller's staff and the Illinois State men's basketball program," Mullins said. "The chance to do my best to contribute to Coach Muller's success at Illinois State, as well as learning from him, is a great privilege and challenge."

Muller, who lost assistants Luke Yacklich and DeAndre Haynes to Michigan last week, says he was impressed with Mullins while meeting him on the recruiting trail.

"I have gotten to know Brendan while on the road recruiting over the past few years, and I've always thought highly of him." Muller said. "He has done a terrific job at his two previous stops as a Division I assistant coach and is well-respected in the business. I really look forward to working with Brendan."
