It looks as though the Michigan Wolverines have found their new head coach after John Beilein left the program for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Michigan is reportedly expected to name Miami Heat assistant coach and former Wolverine player Juwan Howard as Beilein's replacement.

The former All-Star and NBA champion has been the assistant coach for the Heat since 2013. He had played in the NBA from 1994-2013, finishing his career with Miami.

Howard attended Michigan from 1991-1994, building his reputation enough to go fifth overall to the Washington Bullets in the 1994 NBA Draft.

He'll have big shoes to fill in his new role. He's replacing the most successful coach in the history of the school's program.

It's a bold pick for Beilein's successor. Though he has plenty of experience as an assistant, Howard has never served as a head coach in his career.

However, his ties to the program are sure to endear him to the Wolverine faithful.
