  • John Beilein is returning to Michigan. Contract extension is being finalized per source

Wolverines coach John Beilein tweeted Wednesday he was staying in Ann Arbor, Michigan. There was just more rung on that ladder - the National Basketball Association - and it presented itself recently in the form of the Detroit Pistons' head coaching job.

The 65-year-old Beilein has coached at MI for 11 seasons with a 248-143 record. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press earlier this month Beilein interviewed with the Detroit.

The announcement from Beilein came on the heels of reports that he had met with Pistons executives.

Beilein is under contract with MI through the 2020-21 season, a deal that pays him $3.37 million annually, and a school spokesman said a contract extension is imminent.

"We are thrilled that John Beilein will be our coach now and into the future", athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement. He's said repeatedly his intention is to ensure Beilein one day retires at MI.

Beilein has worked continuously as a college head coach since 1978, with stops at a variety of schools before landing at MI in 2007. The Wolverines have made the title game twice under Beilein: this year, and in 2013 against Louisville.
