Cavs hire Michigan's Beilein as next coach - May 13, 2019

John Beilein
The Cleveland Cavaliers have found their next coach in John Beilein . The former University of Michigan coach was officially announced as the Cavs' new coach today, and ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports Beilein agreed to a five-year deal with the team. Talks with Beilein and the Cavs escalated over the weekend, Wojnarowski reports, and a deal was reached on Sunday. The Athletic's Joe Vardon reports the Cavs' interviewing of Beilein was one of the few candidates not disclosed to the media. Per Vardon, Cavs GM Koby Altman had interviewed nearly 10 NBA assistants for the Cavs' vacancy. 'Following the end of those interviews, it became clear to us that Coach Beilein was the right choice and best fit for our franchise," Altman said in a statement released by the team. "John is one of the most accomplished and innovative basketball minds and leaders in the entire game. He has a unique ability to create an outstanding culture that will promote the development of young players and provide a solid structure to the entire program; not to mention the fact that John Beilein wins everywhere he goes. "We are excited Coach Beilein is joining our organization as we continue to build the foundation that any enterprise needs to be successful and competitive year in and year out.' Shortly after the reported deal became known, the Twitter account for Michigan basketball seemed to bid farewell to Beilein with a tweet highlighting his many accomplishments at the school. Beilein acknowledged the university in a tweet from his account Monday that read: "Thanks to everyone at the Univ of Michigan for their incredible support these last 12 years. Our fans, alums, leaders, players and students are AMAZING It has been a heck of a ride and I hope you enjoyed our teams and staff as much as I did! Go Blue Forever! #GoBlue" Cavs owner Dan Gilbert was fond of Beilein's character and work ethic, two points he touched on in his statement about the hiring. "First, John is a great human being. He cares deeply about his players and others who work for him and around him," Gilbert said. "He defines the words class, integrity and character. He is a tireless worker who obsesses about finding better ways and the inches that will help his team and the organization grow. John is a brilliant basketball mind and last but not least, John Beilein is a winner." The 65-year-old Beilein has been at Michigan for 12 seasons, guiding the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament nine times in that span. He is 799-461 in 39 seasons as a college coach and 278-150 at Michigan. He led the Wolverines to the NCAA championship game in 2018, the second time in six years he'd accomplished that. Michigan lost to Louisville in 2013 and Villanova in 2018. In addition to his two Final Four appearances, Beilein has won Big Ten titles at Michigan in 2012 and 2014, and he won the Big Ten Tournament in 2017 and 2018. He replaces Larry Drew, who steered the team through countless injuries and other challenges as the Cavs finished 19-63. The 2018-19 season marked their first season since LeBron James left for a second time and it ended on a 10-game losing streak. Last year, Beilein was among those who interviewed for the Detroit Pistons' coaching vacancy. Per Wojnarowski, the Cavs have been internally using the term "culture driver" when speaking of the possibility of hiring Beilein. He quickly climbed the ranks of basketball, winning consistently in Division I stops at Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia. His college coaching career began in 1978 at Erie Community College, going from there to Nazareth and then Le Moyne.
