Cleveland Cavaliers Hire Michigan’s John Beilein as New Head Coach

A legend in the college ranks, John Beilein has agreed to a five-year contract to become the newest head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Considered an “elite offensive tactician and teacher in basketball”, Beilein has coached at nearly every level of basketball including high school, junior college, as well as Division III, II, and I. Now, after accumulating a 829-468 record as a college coach, Beilein is ready to take the leap into the NBA.

As the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, the 66-year old made it to two Final Fours and four Big Ten tournaments and regular-season titles over his 12 years with the school.

Beilein will be tasked with establishing a new culture on a young Cavaliers team as the franchise looks to build towards the future around young point guard Collin Sexton. Beilein is set to join the Cavaliers this week in Chicago for the NBA draft lottery as well as the combine.

Beilein will be replacing Larry Drew who finished out last season after Tyronn Lue was fired six games into the season. The Cavaliers plan to surround their new coach with an experienced staff of assistant coaches.
