Reaction to John Beilein taking Cleveland Cavaliers job

John Beilein Is A Great Fit For the Cavaliers

Beilein made it known on Monday that he was leaving Ann Arbor to accept the head-coaching position with the Cleveland Cavaliers, a position offered to him by Michigan State alum, and Quicken Loans head man Dan Gilbert.

Beilein was coach of the Wolverines for the last 12 seasons.

Here's some reaction to the coach's decision to leave MI for the Cavs. He's been to the NCAA national championship game twice (most recently in 2018), and won one NIT championship. He quickly climbed the ranks of basketball, winning consistently in Division I stops at Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia. Cleveland fired coach Tyronn Lue after six games last season and then mutually parted ways with Larry Drew to begin a thorough search. Patrick Beilein was also previously head coach at Le Moyne.

The Cavs are rebuilding following a 19-63 season that followed the departure of LeBron James.

Beilein, 66, briefly flirted with the Pistons a year ago before they hired Dwane Casey.

Following the hiring, Cleveland will now shift its focus to Tuesday's draft lottery, where it owns a 14 percent chance of landing the top overall pick. Star forward Kevin Love underwent foot surgery in November, effectively ending any thought the Cavaliers entertained of competing for a playoff spot.
