MI coach Beilein says he’s returning to the Wolverines

MI coach Beilein says he’s returning to the Wolverines

With Beilein publicly removing his name from consideration, former Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey emerges as an overwhelming favorite to get the Pistons gig.

MI coach John Beilein gestures to his team during a game against North Carolina last season.

"It became very clear to me where I was meant to finish coaching", Beilein told the Free Press.

The Pistons are planning to advance the three candidates to meet with owner Tom Gores, sources said.

Beilein is Michigan's all-time coaching wins leader with a 248-143 record in 11 seasons.

Beilein has worked continuously as a college head coach since 1978, with stops at a variety of schools before landing at MI in 2007. MI got good news recently when Charles Matthews took his name out of NBA Draft consideration and made a decision to come back for his junior season.

When Beilein's program hit a bit of a rut, he adapted by bringing in new assistants to help shore up his team's weaknesses at the defensive end. On Wednesday morning, Beilein took to Twitter and said he loves the University of MI.

The flirtation between John Beilein and the Detroit Pistons is over. U-M has not released any information about a potential extension, though it's clear athletic director Warde Manuel is working on one. His team also reached the championship game in 2013.
