University of Evansville head men’s basketball coach Todd Lickliter has announced the promotion of Logan Baumann to Associate Head Coach for the Purple Aces program.
Baumann is entering his fourth season at Evansville, having joined the program in April of 2018 as the Associate Athletic Director for Men’s Basketball Operations. In 2019, Baumann was elevated to Assistant Coach and has worked in that capacity for the last two seasons.
“It is a pleasure to offer Logan the title of Associate Head Coach as it more clearly reflects his role within our program. Logan is a selfless teammate who positively impacts all aspects of our program,” Lickliter said. “In addition, due to the influence of two highly successful mentors in Rick Pitino and Trent Johnson, he is experienced beyond his years. Our players and program are benefitted beyond measure with the knowledge he has acquired and shares through those relationships.”
“We are very thankful for Logan’s many contributions and know he will continue to excel in his role as Associate Head Coach,” Lickliter added.
The impact Baumann has made on the program has been immense. The 2020-21 season saw the squad stage one of the largest turnarounds in Missouri Valley Conference history while improving its league win total by seven games. UE also made the jump into the top five in the final conference standings for the first time since 2016.
“I am extremely grateful to Coach Lickliter and our UE administration for the opportunity and responsibility of Associate Head Coach,” Baumann exclaimed. “Our staff has terrific organizational chemistry, and we are excited to pursue the next step in our upward trajectory under Coach Lickliter’s leadership.”
In his time as a student at the University of Louisville, Baumann worked as a student manager before walking on to the team during the Cardinals’ 2013 NCAA Championship run. Following graduation, Baumann remained with the program for three seasons, finishing as the Senior Director of Video Operations.
Baumann spent his high school career playing at Ohio County HS in Hartford, Ky. where he was the 3rd Region Player of the Year and graduated with valedictorian honors.
