Report: Cavaliers Hire Michigan HC John Beilein, Agree to Five-Year Deal

Report: Cavaliers Hire Michigan HC John Beilein, Agree to Five-Year Deal The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly hired University of Michigan's John Beilein as their next head coach, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Beilein, 66, has coached at Michigan since 2007. He led the Wolverines to two national championship appearances in 2013 and 2018. In 12 seasons in Ann Arbor, Beilein posted a 278–150 record winning two Big Ten regular season titles and two conference tournament championships. Per Wojnarowski, talks between Beilein and the Cavaliers "escalated" over the past weekend, and Beilein informed Michigan's administration of his decision.

Cole Bajema got a call from Michigan basketball coach John Beilein on Friday night. So Bajema did, woke up Saturday morning feeling the same way, and made his decision public with a tweet. Thus ended a recruitment that, once dormant, sped along quickly during the July evaluation period.

"Having patiently waited for Michigan to name its new head coach, I am very excited Juwan Howard is the new head coach. I believe he will uphold the great culture, that is Michigan basketball. I know there's a lot of speculation out there but I am ALL IN for coach Howard and ready to report in June! Go Blue!"

Bajema originally committed to U-M late last summer, after a big jump in the rankings during the July evaluation period. Bajema, who lived in Michigan from ages 3 to 7, and whose father grew up rooting for the Wolverines, signed with the program in November during the early signing period. According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, the Lynden (Wash.) Christian School product is the No. 106 overall recruit in the nation. The 6-foot-7, 175-pound prospect projected as a wing player in Beilein's system.

Bajema had yet to publicly comment on his status following Beilein's departure earlier this month. His reaffirmation of his status means that Michigan will sign at least one player in the 2019 class. Former signee Jalen Wilson asked for and received his release following Beilein's departure and has re-opened his recruitment.

Barring any further attrition, Michigan currently has three open scholarships for the 2019-20 season.
