Borovich comes to the Wildcats after eight seasons (2011-19) as a member of the Northern Illinois coaching staff, four of which were as the associate head coach. Prior to his arrival in DeKalb, he spent four seasons (2007-11) as an assistant coach at Dayton and two campaigns (2005-07) as an assistant at Oakland.

"We are extremely excited to add Jon to our staff," Collins said. "He is an experienced college coach with a great pedigree coaching under fantastic coaches throughout his stops along the way. He is a hard worker with great energy and a terrific teacher that will impact our program in many areas."
