Former WVU Coach Beilein to Become HC of Cleveland Cavaliers

After spending 12 years at the help for the Michigan Wolverines, former West Virginia head coach John Beilein will get his first NBA opportunity with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The 30-year coaching veteran signed a five-year deal with the Cavaliers on Monday.

Beilein was the head coach of the Mountaineers while the program was in the Big East, from 2002-2007. He put together a 104-60 record in Morgantown while guiding WVU to an Elite Eight appearance in 2005 and a Sweet Sixteen spot in 2006.
