It was reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that GM Altman has been keeping an eye on Beilein for a while and he had glowing praise for his new head coach in the team's release this morning, saying, "John is one of the most accomplished and innovative basketball minds and leaders in the entire game".
The reactions to the hire have been predominately positive, with one rival National Basketball Association general manager raving about the move. That WVU club featured a Northeast Ohio product by the name of Mike Gansey, who is the Cavs' assistant GM. If you hate MI, you probably had a soft spot for Beilein even if he did steal a few wins from MSU along the way. Beilein was the fourth highest paid coach in the Big Ten.
In 2010, Jordan was hired by Beilein to be an assistant and he was a big part of the Wolverines staff through the 2015-2016 season before being hired as head coach at Milwaukee.
With Beilein, Canisius won at least 21 games twice and advanced to the 1996 NCAA tourney. MI lost to Louisville in 2013 and Villanova in 2018. In that time he took a team facing scandal and possible NCAA sanction and after two rebuilding seasons took the program to the second weekend of the NCAA tournament in back to back years as well as an NIT Championship in his final season.
Beilein is replacing Larry Drew, who was named head coach after Tyronn Lue was sacked.
Last year, Beilein was among those who interviewed for the Detroit Pistons' coaching vacancy.

Financials terms of Beilein's contract have not been released.
Jordan played his college ball at Butler before starting his coaching career in 2003. Per Wojnarowski, Beilein has been reassured by owner Dan Gilbert that his value system will be installed with the Cavs.
But with two first-round picks and some solid veterans already on the roster, perhaps Beilein views this as the best opportunity.
