Who'da thunk that B-line would wind up being the rock star of the bunch, back when Michigan was hiring all of West Virginia's coaches?

Certainly seems to be a lot of momentum for Juwan Howard. Which...ok

Will they be allowed to call him a former player in broadcasts if his seasons never happened?

The priority needs to be keeping Yaklich. He's a star defensive mind and in as much demand as any assistant coach in america. Either give him the HC or hire someone who wants to and can keep him. So if Warde is not going to hire Yaklich as HC, the next best option is to hire Juwan Howard and give Yaklich a raise. 🤞

Howard is a wild card, no doubt. I'm not at all familiar with his coaching chops in Miami. But I'm betting him to be an ace recruiter and open to staff continuity. I also like the historical connection.

Concerns with Juwan:

- lower odds of keeping Yaklich than just hiring Yaklich outright
- risk of flaming out (a risk I think is far more acceptable than taking a guaranteed no one)
- higher than Beilein risk of NBA HC defection if he finds success

Higher than 100%? That's not good.

That's not how risk works. For Beilein: if his risk of NBA defection had been higher, he'd have left sooner.

Apparently Juwan Howard and Lvall Jordan are the top choices and they'll be interviewing early next week. I don't like it but don't hate it either, especially if either of them can retain Yaklich. We'll find out in a few days it sounds like....

I far prefer Howard to Jordan. Both are wild cards but Juwan's ceiling, especially as a recruiter, is far higher. Yaklich should be offered the job long before Jordan.

I'm not sure how one can conclude that. Howard has no experience coaching or recruiting in college at all as far as I can tell.  I can't really figure this one out - if you are going to hire a guy with no head coaching experience, why not hire the guy already on the team?

Jordan has had three underwhelming seasons as a head coach and seems like the very definition of failing up if he gets the Michigan job.  I do see he has a top 100 recruit committed, which is good.  Not sure where to place Butler as a program - clearly a stepping stone job, but also one that's been to two national championship games in recent memory.  What do recruits think of that?

I have agreed with that. We can't know what Juwan's going to produce as a recruiter. That's also why I typed ceiling. Compared to Lavall Jordan (and most humans), Juwan Howard is a charisma factory. And he seems to have a good heart. Charisma factories with good hearts tend to be natural recruiters.

Ha. 😬 Maybe there's only one sport I love for sake of itself and that is hockey. I think I take on the rest because I love Michigan (significantly more than I love its sports) and take all opportunities to celebrate it. Hence my attention for Michigan basketball ... once it became worth celebrating.

It sounds more and more like Juwan Howard heads the list. The biggest hurdle - aside from somehow retaining Yaklich, of course - may be that Juwan is one of four finalists for the Minnesota Timberwolves job. Ryan Saunders sounds like the front runner there, at least for now.
