The Michigan Wolverines are now without a head basketball coach after John Beilein announces he is leaving to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Beilein went to twitter to thank the Wolverine faithful, “Thanks to everyone at the Univ of Michigan for their incredible support these last 12 years. Our fans, alums, leaders, players, and students are AMAZING. It has been a heck of a ride and I hope you enjoyed our teams and staff as much as I did ! Go Blue Forever! #GoBlue“
Coach Beilein took the Michigan job in 2007, where he made the NCAA 9 out of 12 trips, that including two national championship appearances, losing both. Beilein had also won the Big Ten championship in 2012 and 2014.
“I love the position the team is in to build and grow and this was something I felt was the perfect fit for me…” Beilein said in the Cleveland Cavaliers statement. Cleveland has a rising star in Colin Sexton, veteran players like Channing Frye and Kevin Love, and will be reunited with Michigan alum Nik Stauskas.
Michigan is losing it’s winningest coach in program history and left big shoes to fill. How will this program fare without Coach B? Either way, Go Blue.
