After reportedly being a candidate for the Detroit Pistons' vacant head coaching job, John Beilein will return to the University of Michigan next season.
Beilein announced his decision to remain with the Wolverines on Twitter:
Per The Athletic's Brendan Quinn, Beilein and Michigan are nearing a contract extension that will be worth close to $4 million per year over five years.
Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Beilein was one of three coaching candidates that Pistons ownership was scheduled to meet with for a second time. Former Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey and San Antonio Spurs assistant Ime Udoka are the others.
The Pistons have been searching for a new head coach after parting ways with Stan Van Gundy in early May. They have missed the playoffs in eight of the past nine seasons and haven't won a postseason series since reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in 2008.
Beilein has been at Michigan since April 2007, when he took over for Tommy Amaker. The 65-year-old has a 248-143 record in 11 seasons with the Wolverines.
He's led Michigan to eight NCAA tournament appearances and two trips to the national championship game in 2013 and 2018.
