Beilein is going into his 12th season as the head coach of the Wolverines, and led them to the national championship game as a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament last season. However, they were simply no match for top-seeded Villanova, falling 79-62. This is the second time Beilein has reached the national championship game, as his team fell to Louisville back in 2013. He has also led them to three Elite Eights, four Sweet Sixteens and eight NCAA tournament appearances.
See you soon, Coach Beilein.
