College try: Cavs lure Beilein from Michigan

May 14, 2019 - South Florida Sun-Sentinel

CLEVELAND - John Beilein has spent a coaching lifetime taking ordinary programs and turning them into consistent winning ones.

All in college.

He's getting his NBA shot.

The Cavaliers ended a monthlong search Monday by hiring Beilein, a 66-year-old offensive mastermind who made Michigan a perennial powerhouse and now takes over a rebuilding project in Cleveland. Beilein got a five-year deal with the Cavs, who believe he can make the successful leap from campus.
