    Beilein used college scandal as contributing factor in departing.

    Maybe Few follows footsteps one day

    Supersonics revival means his departure?

    "Beilein has run model programs in college, free of scandal and impropriety. In recent years, he's become increasingly frustrated with the nature of college basketball recruiting and the retention of top players. The impending loss of Michigan freshman Ignas Brazdeikis with senior Charles Matthews and sophomore Jordan Poole to the NBA draft dented what might have been a national championship contender."

    Just leave John....no reason for a parting shot at the hand that fed you.....

    Wow, did not see this coming. Taking over a bad team...probably fired in 2 years. There is no patience in the NBA, it's win now or else.

    Still gets paid for 5, so a win-win for him.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    Anyone know the approximate pay difference between what he was making at Michigan vs what he will make with Cleveland?

    It looks like $2.4-$3.37 mil at Michigan vs ? at Cleveland.

    Every time a great program gets its coach hired away, I am grateful Coach Few likes his life in Spokane.

    honesty as to why one is leaving is good not only for the individuals sole but for the company who is being left for other options if they truly want to reflect on system improvements (but the ncaa wont care as they dont want to improve)

    interesting thought-- i know that next season's roster will probably be a bit of a mess, but Michigan should maybe be considered a top-5 or so job in college basketball right now. think about it, what other major college programs can compete with that combination of history, resources, and ***the guy before me almost certainly wasn't a cheater so i don't have to worry about the cloud of NCAA investigations/sanctions or my new basketball program being brought up by the FBI***? nova, maybe michigan state. gu obviously checks the boxes other than the conference... but taking a job anywhere else seems like a roll of the dice (tho that obviously didn't stop chris mack, for example).

    Interesting some of the comments above.

    I thought Beilein's name DID come up in the NCAA scandal. Am I "misremembering?"
    This ain't rocket surgery!

    Regardless of the pay...I cannot think of a much worse job than being a coach in a players league....especially with the length of the season and the amount of travel .. I cannot imagine there is enough money to get Few to do it...

    From Detroit Free Press quoting ex - Wolverine Spike Albrecht: “Recruiting is a pain in the ass, (Beilein) is not someone who is going to go out and kiss ass and do stuff like that for a 16, 17-year old kid. It just takes a lot out of you. ... He actually did things the right way."
    The money Cleveland is offering is not much different than what Michigan could or would have paid him. Most coaches hate recruiting - plus he's getting older. Great loss for Michigan. He's one heck of a coach.

    to my knowledge, it did not. i think both michigan state and villanova came up tangentially, but i don't think michigan did. i know this isn't definitive or anything, but here's the best support i have for my position: link. it might be a little outdated, but between it being a very reasonable looking list AND the fact that he has 2.5x as many votes as 2nd place (and almost 5x as many as few), i'd say that college coaches' perception (and likely the reality) of the MI job is as I described.
