Michigan's Beilein to take Cavaliers coaching job

14 May 2019

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

Beilein is the winningest coach in MI history with a 278-150 record in 12 seasons. For a month, it's completely free!

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news on Monday morning, announcing Beilein has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

On Monday, the school and Beilein acknowledged he is leaving MI without saying where he is going.

Talks between the Cavaliers and Beilein escalated quickly over the weekend with a deal reached on Sunday. He had talks with the Detroit Pistons previous year when they were in the market for a new coach, but he said he was never offered that job.

Beilein will take over a Cavaliers franchise that fired Tyronn Lue after an 0-6 start and opted not to bring back Larry Drew after the team finished 19-63.
