Rival NBA Executive Raves About Cavs’ Recent Hire of John Beilein

In 2010, Jordan was hired by Beilein to be an assistant and he was a big part of the Wolverines staff through the 2015-2016 season before being hired as head coach at Milwaukee.

Michigan Wolverines head men's basketball coach John Beilein will leave the college ranks to turn pro himself this fall, the shocking news of his leaving Ann Arbor coming early on Monday.

ESPN's report of the hiring on Monday morning also occurred after general manager Koby Altman and several members of the organization spent a couple days in Denver, where they interviewed four up-and-coming National Basketball Association assistant coaches.

Howard has been mentioned in rumors in the immediate aftermath of Beilein's hiring as both a candidate for MI, or to go to Cleveland as one of his top assistants. It's free for May. Your team's ballyhooed hiring of University of MI coach Jon Beilein doesn't matter in the slightest. Why? MI lost to Louisville in 2013 and Villanova in 2018. Cleveland fired coach Tyronn Lue after six games last season and then mutually parted ways with Larry Drew to begin a thorough search.

Last year, Beilein was among those who interviewed for the Detroit Pistons' coaching vacancy. He's coached for four schools (Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia, and Michigan), and taken all of them to the NCAA Tournament. An NBA lifer as his top assistant would obviously be a prudent move. I am very thankful to Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman and honored to be the head coach of the Cavaliers.

Mogherini said the talks would focus on "how to continue to best support the full implementation of the nuclear deal". This will be the highest-level talks between the USA and Russian Federation in 10 months.

The NBA drama continued the day after two spellbinding Game 7s.

The Cavs lost their final game of 2018-19, capping a 19-63 finish.

No other Big Ten team returns a first-team All-American. But despite starting over, and despite untold injuries, Cleveland emerged from a rough season excited about the future.
