Michigan coach John Beilein has agreed to a three-year contract extension. The deal, which the Associated Press says is worth $7.3 million, will keep Beilein in Ann Arbor through the 2018-19 season. Beilein, who was hired by U-of-M in 2007, guided Michigan to the NCAA championship game last season. He took over the program after leading West Virginia to the 2007 NIT title.
Michigan has reached the NCAA Tournament in four of the six seasons under Beilein and last year tied a school record with 31 wins before losing to Louisville in the national title game. The 60-year old Beilein owns a 673-and-403 career record.
