John Beilein staying at MI amid Pistons rumors

John Beilein is returning to Michigan. Contract extension is being finalized per source

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, former Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey discussed the position with Detroit owner Tom Gores on Tuesday, which was followed by MI basketball coach John Beilein announcing that he's pulling out of the runningfor the Pistons gig.

With Beilein publicly removing his name from consideration, former Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey emerges as an overwhelming favorite to get the Pistons gig.

The Wolverines are projected as a preseason top-25 team in 2018-19, Beilein's 12th season at the helm.

Udoka was scheduled to meet with Gores on Wednesday in a second meeting with the organization, sources said.

John Beilein's coaching career has been a 40-year climb.

When Beilein's program hit a bit of a rut, he adapted by bringing in new assistants to help shore up his team's weaknesses at the defensive end.

Beilein led the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament Championship game this past season, before falling to Villanova.

Michigan's athletic director Warde Manuel voiced the same feelings. "Michigan has become home for John and Kathleen the past 11 years and we are excited they plan to stay for years to come". MI was one of the top defensive teams in the country this past season, again falling just one game short of a national title.
