When Michigan basketball head coach John Beilein bolted for the NBA last spring it was a shocker. Beilein was the most successful hoops leader in program history. Most important of all to Michigan fans is that he won “the right way.” All of which made the hiring of Juwan Howard as Beilein’s replacement quite ironic. Howard was a member of Michigan’s “Fab Five.” While that era is associated with College Basketball bets glory it was tarnished by scandal. Howard was never implicated and the Michigan Man was seen as a perfect fit in Ann Arbor.
