Juwan Howard is faced with the task of replacing John Beilein.

Juwan Howard’s message at Big Ten media day was clear: Beilein was great. But he’s going to be his own man. That’s how he’s bringing Michigan into the Howard era.

New Michigan coach Juwan Howard wants to be himself rather than trying to replace John Beilein.

It may seem strange to consider a seasoned, 19-year NBA veteran with five years of coaching experience as an assistant for the Miami Heat a “rookie” in anything basketball related and yet, at his first Big Ten Media Day as Michigan’s head basketball coach, Howard was in fact the lone newcomer amongst the league’s 14 head coaches.

Michigan coach Juwan Howard is already giving offers to some of the nation's top recruits two months into his job.

The Michigan basketball program is entering a new era by harkening back to an old one.

Former Michigan coach John Beilein had his introductory press conference with the Cavaliers Tuesday.

Though his new role as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers may garner him an “Ohio man” by some, Beilein spoke candidly about his 12 years in Ann Arbor and the impact the support of the students had on his time with the program. For Beilein, the admiration between himself and the students was mutual.

With John Beilein gone, former 2019 Michigan signee Jalen Wilson has decided to reconsider his options for the future.

Just three days after John Beilein accepted the Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coaching post, Michigan’s top-ranked signee has re-opened his recruitment.
