John Beilein Pens Emotional Farewell to University of Michigan After Being Hired by Cavs

John Beilein Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers have their new head coach in decorated college coach John Beilein.

Before he dons the Wine and Gold for the first time, however, Beilein took a moment to thank the Maize and Blue of the University of Michigan for the past 12 years of his career.

Beilein is beloved in Ann Arbor thank to the fact that he took a relatively forgettable program and turned it into a relative powerhouse. During his tenure at Michigan, Beilein won two Big Ten Tournaments, two Big Ten regular season titles, advanced to the Final Four twice, and made a handful of other deep NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament runs.

It is surely a sad day for fans of the Wolverines, but their loss is the Cavs’ gain.

While Beilein has not yet coached at the professional level in his career, he has become known for his ability to draw up effective offensive plays, focusing on the 3-pointer to score in bunches. He has also excelled at developing talent throughout his career.
