  • Michigan coach John Beilein celebrates with Michigan guards Charles Matthews and Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman as they head to the bench in the final minutes of their Sweet 16 game against Texas A&M at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday Mar

The former head coach for the Raptors reportedly had a "strong interview" with the Pistons organization.

Beilein, who led MI to the National Championship Game in April, was rumored as one of the favorites for the head coaching opening with the Detroit Pistons.

"I love the University of MI and I am excited about coaching our Men's Basketball Team next season and in the years to come!" he tweeted. On Wednesday, he tweeted that he would be coming back to MI next season and "in the years to come".

Beilein interviewed with the Pistons, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press last week on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

Beilein is Michigan's winningest coach and is entering his 12th year in charge of the program. The Wolverines have made the NCAA tournament eight of the past 10 seasons under Beilein and have twice advanced to the national to game, falling against Louisville in 2013 and Villanova this past April.


Beilein was reportedly in "serious talks" with the Pistons about making the jump to the National Basketball Association, but the 65-year-old is staying in maize and blue.

Long considered one of college basketball's top offensive minds, Beilein is 799-461 in 39 seasons.

MI fans will be pleased to hear Beilein isn't going anywhere.

John Beilein isn't going anywhere.

MI won a team-record 33 games in 2017-18 and reached the national championship game before falling to Villanova. "And, maybe that's why I'm still coaching".
