The Pistons reportedly met with former Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kiddthis past weekend and there were reports about the franchise also interviewing Juwan Howard and Kenny Smith.

Beilein was linked to the Detroit Pistons' head coaching job in the last week, but he declared his intentions to come back to MI on Wednesday in a tweet. Beilein tweeted Wednesday. "Let's go hang some more banners at "THE GREATEST UNIVERSITY IN THE WORLD".

Just a few days after opening a lot of eyes interview for the Detroit Pistons job, it now appears that John Beilein has pulled his name from consideration and will continue as the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines.

The Michigan Man was named as CBSSports.com's Coach of the Year after a tremendous 33-8 campaign, including a Big Ten Conference Tournament win.

The Michigan basketball coach will return for his 12th season in 2018-19. We made it a priority to sit down shortly after our tremendous run in the Final Four to discuss and solidify his future at MI.

After the Pistons parted ways with Stan Van Gundy last month, Charles Barkley implored the organization to consider hiring Zeke as their president of basketball operations, which was a spot also held down by Van Gundy.

This is obviously great news for the MI basketball program.

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. They reached the national championship game but were defeated by Villanova 79-62.

"It became very clear to me where I was meant to finish coaching", Beilein told the Free Press.
