John Beilein staying at MI amid Pistons rumors

On Wednesday morning, Beilein took to Twitter and said he loves the University of MI.

Beilein said Tuesday on Twitter that he is excited to continue as Michigan's coach "next season and in the years to come". On Wednesday morning, it was reported that the head coach was considered one of the top candidates to take over the Detroit Pistons.

Van Gundy had been the head coach and team president for four years.

The US President said he's hopeful that the Singapore summit will lead to a "bright new future" for North Korea and the world. Leading the American efforts in negotiating with the North Koreans, he said the U.S. is making progress, inch by inch.

Beilein has led to the team to two national championship game appearances, two Big Ten regular season titles and two Big Ten Tournament championships.

There had been talk of a contract extension, and this might have just been a ploy to make sure it got done.

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

"As a matter of fact we are (talking about that)", Beilein said.

Beilein's revised contract at MI was in the works prior to his discussions with the Pistons. U-M has not released any information about a potential extension, though it's clear athletic director Warde Manuel is working on one.
