Will a college coach from the State of Michigan be the next coach of the Cavs?

Who will be the next head coach of the Cleveland Cavilers?
John Beilein? The 62 year head coach of the University of Michigan is a strong possibility. It is no secret as it has been heavily publicized that there is a feud between Lebron James and Cavaliers head coach David Blatt. The owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers with strong ties to the state of Michigan and a track recorded of going after veteran college coaches as was the case a couple of years ago with his pursuit of Tom Izzo could be looking at John Beilein to be the Cavs new head coach.
University of Michigan Head coach John Beilein would be an ideal fit for Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Beilein is the only active collegiate coach to have achieved 20-win seasons at four different levels and a switch to the NBA would be a smooth transition. Beilein is not only considered one of the best X’s and O’s coaches in all of college basketball but that of any coach at any level. He has put multiple players into the NBA were they have been successful and he being a veteran coach would get the attention of Lebron James who is clearly asking Cavs management for a quality veteran coach to replace David Blatt. Beilein makes approximately $1.9 million annually which would allow the Cavs to easily be able to afford to pay him to leave the University of Michigan.
However, there is a “but”. John Beilein from all accounts and from what is said in inner circles loves coaching at the University of Michigan. Like Izzo and his wiliness to stay at Michigan State, it would take a lot of convincing to get John Beilein to leave Ann Arbor for Cleveland. Only time will tell, so stay tuned.
