Dwane Casey leading candidate for Pistons coach; Kenny Smith meeting with Gores

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

The Michigan Wolverines won't have to worry about head coach John Beilein making the jump to the National Basketball Association this season.

After visiting with the Detroit Pistons twice about their recent head coaching opening, MI men's basketball's all-time wins leader announced Wednesday that he'll remain in Ann Arbor.

This alluding to his recent interview for the head coaching job of the Detroit Pistons. "Let's go hang some more banners at the greatest university in the world".

Casey met with Detroit owner Tom Gores on Tuesday, his second interview with the team, sources said.

An unnamed US official speculated at the time that "it's very possible that the North Koreans are testing for two countries". They argue Trump should not start the discussions, but that his involvement should be the carrot at the end of the process.

Beilein's contract with MI runs through the 2020-21 season, where he earns $3.37 million per year. Michigan's made seven of the past eight NCAA Tournaments and made it to at least the Elite Eight in three of those years. Detroit has been looking for a coach for a month since firing Stan Van Gundy, who was also its president of basketball operations.

"I love the University of MI", he tweeted Wednesday, his first public comments of any sort since the news of his interview with the Pistons surfaced. His team also reached the championship game in 2013.

"We are thrilled that John Beilein will be our coach now and into the future".
