UW-Milwaukee point guard Jordan Johnson is following his coach Rob Jeter to UNLV. Both Johnson and the Runnin’ Rebels tweeted the news on Wednesday, almost two weeks after Jeter was hired as an assistant to new Las Vegas coach Marvin Menzies.
Johnson averaged 12 points and eight assists for the Panthers last season, and he’ll have to sit out one year under NCAA transfer rules before he plays his senior year in the fall of 2017.
Johnson is the third player to leave Milwaukee after being upset about the way Jeter was let go. Cody Wichmann decided to stay after he also received permission to transfer.
