    With a return to college likely I wonder if we see a surprise firing or 2 this offseason by someone who didn’t necessarily have a terrible year but thinks they have a legit shot to hire him

    I knew it was an idiot move from the word go.

    Bet he lands at Texas.

    why is a return to college likely? Has beilein come out and said this or is it pure conjecture?

    Never understood why he left Michigan. The dude is old and had a good thing going. Even his mediocre seasons were applauded.

    Seems like an obvious fit for DePaul.

    agreed...I’m just saying the dude is 67 and I think feeling a bit washed. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him hang it up either

    Dude never should’ve left Michigan. I knew it was a mistake.

    Beilein would be an excellent first assistant on an NBA team. Great hoops mind that is not in charge of all the egos an NBA team has. (and make no mistake, the players run the NBA) As a head coach on the pro level....I never saw him as the right fit for that. College is his best place to be a head coach IMO.

    I hope he doesn't come to the ACC. I know he's old and he probably doesn't want to rebuild a program but he'd be an excellent hire for a place like Wake Forest or Boston College. Wake Forest's buyout of Danny Manning is insane though and I'm not sure BC is ready to get rid of Jim Christian since he seems to have them relatively competitive in a down ACC.

    Yeah, he needs to just retire. Sounds like his tenure at Cleveland has really stressed him out. No need to keel over just because of basketball.

    Beilein isn’t going out like this, he will be back and it won’t be for a rebuild. If he went a few years then maybe he would struggle to find a suitor but with only a 1 year reprieve from college ball a notable P5 program with football money will grab him and give him a chance to win quickly. He will go 3-5 years at wherever he lands.

    Pretty sure he has never been anything but a HC so doubt he was gonna go the assistant route.

    I liked it and figured a chance worth taking. Had a succession plan in place with Bickerstaff who they probably hoped would take over in 4-5 years, but could move him in sooner (and did) if things did not work out.

    But as we know if it's in a report, even with no factual basis, it's true if it supports someone's narrative.
