Michigan Basketball: 3 dream candidates for replacing John Beilein

In that time he took a team facing scandal and possible NCAA sanction and after two rebuilding seasons took the program to the second weekend of the NCAA tournament in back to back years as well as an NIT Championship in his final season.

As far as returning talent goes, Beilein will have a relatively young core of Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman to work with out of the gates. Those attributes obviously are critical. He spent two seasons as head coach of Memphis and finished with a record of 48-97 over that span.

There had been mutual interest between the two sides months earlier, though Beilein never emerged as a top candidate due to the improbability that he would leave MI. It's mind-boggling he gave that up to go coach a bad National Basketball Association team. Prior to Beilein taking over in 2007, though, the Wolverines hadn't been to an NCAA tournament in a decade.

Playing five freshmen last season - a lot - will pay off.

I can not imagine any better place to be and any club with more potential. "We've got a history of making them the best". The end of the season just makes it clearer.

"Thanks to everyone at the Univ of MI for their incredible support these last 12 years". Wojnarowski also reported that Beilien has grown more and more frustrated with college basketball's recruiting and the ways teams keep top players.

That's a heck of a résumé for a coach who seems to have the skills and makeup to succeed at the ultimate level.

Beilein doesn't have to be the coach when the Cavs are a Zion Williamson-, Ja Morant- or R.J. Barrett-led contender for this to be a smart hire.

It's always good to see your rival go through tough periods in terms of on-court success over the years which is why MI fans loved John L. Smith and Bobby Williams so much. "Obviously we hope we get the best player".
