If sources are to be believed, the Cleveland Cavaliers could soon be on the lookout for a new head coach. Jim Beilein, the former Michigan coach, has endured a torrid campaign in the NBA thus far. His team are pretty bad, sitting at 14-40, which is the worst in the Eastern Conference.
The 67-year old is on a five-year deal as well, with this first year of the rebuild proving to be a disaster for him, as most would expect. He didn’t help matters much, of course, when he referred to his team as ‘thugs’ a couple months back. Honestly, the writing was on the wall then, so it’s been a matter of time. A return to college looks like likely for him, unless he elects to retire.
