College try: Cavs lure Beilein from Michigan
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.
