Michigan's John Beilein To Coach Cleveland Cavaliers

Michigan's John Beilein To Coach Cleveland Cavaliers

The 66-year-old Beilein does not have pro experience but he's long regarded as one of college hoops' best minds.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the deal will be for five years. Most recently in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, Beilein guided MI to its third consecutive Sweet 16, and the fifth in his tenure in Ann Arbor, putting MI alongside Gonzaga and Kentucky as the only three schools to reach the Sweet 16 in each of the last three seasons.

From Nazareth College to LeMoyne to Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia and finally to Michigan, Beilein has built a strong reputation for developing young players and teams.

He has 754 career wins as a head coach. News of Beilein's hiring surfaced Monday morning.

Beilein, 66, was hired at MI in 2007 and has led the Wolverines to two Final Four appearances, two Big Ten Tournament titles, a multiple Sweet Sixteen appearances.

Speaking about her baby son, Meghan said: "He has the sweetest temperament and he's really calm and been the dream". The world got to see the royal baby for the first time today and also learn his name, all in the span of a day.

Beilein succeeds Larry Drew in Cleveland. He is 799-461 in 39 seasons as a college coach and 278-150 at MI.

Cleveland went 19-63 this season after LeBron James left for the Los Angeles Lakers last summer, the same record the wine and gold managed in 2010-11 after the three-time champion initially spurned his hometown team.

Although this will be Beilein's National Basketball Association debut, this isn't the firs time he's contemplated a jump to the professional ranks. Cleveland's roster should get an upgrade in the draft and the Cavs are hoping for some more luck in Tuesday's lottery, where the victor will have a shot at Duke All-American Zion Williamson. The team has always been impressed with Beilein, and there was a personal connection with him as he coached assistant GM Mike Gansey at West Virginia.

We understand the skepticism, but this is a good move that could wind up looking great if the lottery gods strike again Tuesday night.
