Jalen Rose: Juwan Howard Hire Heals Fab Five Wounds At Michigan

25 May 2019

MI hiring Juwan Howard to be its next men's basketball coach could end the feud between members of the iconic Fab Five team, Jalen Rose said Thursday.

"We're not going to bring that to Ann Arbor's campus with Juwan Howard as our head coach", Rose said.

But the Fab Five have not been on the best of terms over the years, particularly current ESPN analyst Jalen Rose and Chris Webber.

MI touching back to that time with the Howard hiring is significant for the school, and everyone has wondered what Webber thinks of it considering he has been disassociated with the school due to his role in the Ed Martin scandal.

"I think one common thread that they have, they're really good people who care about their players, quite honestly, and always put their players first", Robinson said, "and understand that, yeah, winning basketball games is really important, but what matters most is how you develop these young kids both on and off the court".

"There will not be any disrespect to the program, there will not be any sideshows, there will not be any friction among the Fab Five".

Sanderson is a long-time assistant with MI basketball according to the team's website, which says he first took over the position back in 2009. "I would also like to thank the coaching staff and the City (of) Ann Arbor for showing an unbelievable amount of love and support". He's also a great man, who went back to get his degree after being in the National Basketball Association and that says a lot about him.

A federal investigation revealed now-deceased booster Ed Martin gave Webber and three non-Fab Five players more than $600,000. The NCAA vacated all of the school's wins from the 1991-92 and the 1992-93 seasons. Over the last few years, there has been some tension amongst the Fab Five, with Webber opting to not be a part of the 30 for 30 documentary about them.
