Billy Donovan tops MI fans' wish list to replace John Beilein

14 May 2019

According to ESPN Radio's John Weiner (Stugotz), a familiar face is a front-runner to become the next head coach at the University of MI.

University of MI spokesman Tom Wywrot confirmed Belein is leaving the school.

Reports Monday morning say that University of MI has lost their head basketball coach.

The Cavaliers have been using the term "culture driver" internally when discussing the possibility of hiring Beilein, sources said.

Weiner is reporting that according to his sources, former Detroit Pistons' head coach Stan Van Gundy is a front-runner to replace John Beilein at MI. "Beilein informed his administration on Monday morning of his decision to make leap to National Basketball Association, and is telling his players now".

He reportedly interviewed for the Detroit Pistons coaching job last season, but ultimately signed the extension with MI.

Beilein replaces Larry Drew, who finished last season after Tyronn Lue was sacked six games into the campaign.

Beilein succeeds Larry Drew in Cleveland. The team says they are in the rebuilding process.

Talks between the Cavaliers and Beilein escalated quickly over the weekend with a deal reached on Sunday.
