And, for the past 11 years, Michigan. Beilein reportedly interviewed for the Detroit Pistons head coaching vacancy last week. And he has no intention of leaving Ann Arbor before retiring.

This is obviously great news for the MI basketball program.

If Detroit passes on all of those options, perhaps they should consider a couple of familiar faces: former Pistons Isiah Thomas and Bill Laimbeer.

The Detroit Pistons are without a head coach, general manager or team president - but at least one of those roles could be filled soon.

John Beilein, the head coach of the University of MI men's basketball team, tweeted Wednesday that he's excited about coaching for U of M for years to come. He is now signed through the 2020-21 season at $3.37 million per year. On Wednesday morning, Beilein took to Twitter and said he loves the University of MI.

Beilein coached MI to the national title game this past season, and he emerged on NBA radars because of his ability to develop players.

On Wednesday evening, after Beilein's tweet, Manuel released a statement: "We are thrilled that John Beilein will be our coach now and into the future".
