Michigan's John Beilein has agreed to become the Cleveland Cavaliers' next head coach, the Cavs announced Monday.

That would be the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers.

What gives? Surely Beilein was ready for another challenge.

Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news Monday morning.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra and assistant coach Juwan Howard of the Miami Heat direct the team against the Philadelphia 76ers during the first half at American Airlines Arena on November 12, 2018 in Miami, Florida.

Additionally, Wojnarowski touched on in his report that Beilein has had success everywhere he's been, which includes "high school, junior college and Division III, II and I".

It's OK to be happy about the Wolverines losing their best coach in decades and a top-five coach in the country, but what he brought to the rivalry and the amount of respect he showed to Michigan State and the game of basketball will be missed.

Manuel says he has "already received a significant number of calls and a lot of interest in the potential for this position".

He has to establish a culture and develop Sexton, Cedi Osman, the 2019 rookie class and any other young players the Cavs are able to acquire with their combination of future cap space and draft picks the next couple years. He also coached one of the first nationally known stretch big men while at WVU in Martinsburg native Kevin Pittsnogle.

"I love the position the team is in to build and grow and this was something I felt was the flawless fit for me. The impending loss of MI freshman Ignas Brazdeikis, senior Charles Matthews and sophomore Jordan Poole to the NBA Draft dented what might have been a national championship contender". He loved MI, but was frustrated with the new NBA Draft rules. "The FBI situation also had him questioning much about the college game".
