Michigan’s John Beilein has agreed to a five-year deal to become coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources tell ESPN.

Came thisclose to taking the Pistons job last year. Goodie made a good point. Mike Gansey who played for John at West Virginia is the Assistant GM in Cleveland.

3 possibilities here, beyond the obvious financial gain.

1. If you look at his career, John kind of was the closest thing to Larry Brown in the college game. He never stayed at one place very long. Michigan was his longest run, I believe

2. He's pulling a Pete Carroll, and getting out before something previously unknown to the public comes down at Michigan (unlikely)

or:

3. The total opposite of #2. The recent trials have shown what a cesspool college recruiting really is. John has a reputation of not diving into that pool. With the trials not having changed the status quo too much, John might feel it is time to get away, before he has to sell his soul.

Or he's 66 and doesn't want a 12 month job like college and went for one last pay day.

Michigan fans are in shock and they're all in a state of panic. I can only wish to one day be so upset over a coach leaving our program! Would mean we are actually relevant.

Do they make a run at Thad Matta?

Or is this the time Gregg Marshall leaves Wichita St.
