Michigan's John Beilein leaving to coach Cleveland Cavaliers

Michigan head coach John Beilein yells during a game in March

Cleveland has signed former MI coach John Beilein to a five-year contract.

News of Beilein leaving MI is certainly not what was expected from the Cavs coaching vacancy, though Beilein had recieved interest in coaching in the National Basketball Association past year.

Here is a roundup of social media reaction to Beilein's hiring. It's free for May. Beilein has become one of the most successful coaches in college basketball with program-changing stops at Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia and MI. MI lost to Louisville in 2013 and Villanova in 2018.

The Cavaliers struggled mightily last season as they acclimated themselves to life without LeBron James.

You may recall that he met with the Detroit Pistons a year ago about a coaching position.

Beilein was able to replicate his small-school success on the big stage at West Virginia, where he recorded a 104-60 overall record in Morgantown and took the Mountaineers to a pair of Sweet 16 appearances.

Three Cavaliers (excluding Cleveland's two 2019 NBA Draft selections) should benefit early on from Beilein's offensive influence.

His comments came after four commercial ships were targeted in a "sabotage attack" off the United Arab Emirates ( UAE ) on Sunday. USA and allied intelligence assessments indicate Iran was also behind sabotaging two Saudi oil tankers on Monday .

Beilein was reportedly intrigued by the young talent and fluidity of the Cavs roster. Perhaps Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert mad him an offer he couldn't refuse.

The Cavs lost their final game of 2018-19, capping a 19-63 finish.

If Michigan were to call, it wouldn't be the first team to show interest.

"Everybody will be anxious", Love said in April.

We understand the skepticism, but this is a good move that could wind up looking great if the lottery gods strike again Tuesday night. But despite starting over, and despite untold injuries, Cleveland emerged from a rough season excited about the future.

Playing five freshmen last season - a lot - will pay off. "We improved in a lot of different areas and a lot of individual areas".
