John Beilein made the leap from West Virginia to Michigan to now the Cavaliers

Here is a roundup of social media reaction to Beilein's hiring. Beilein got a five-year deal with the Cavs, who believe he can make the successful leap from campus. However, he's spent six years as an assistant coach for the Heat and has earned a stellar reputation along the way.

All of those wins, and success, catapulted him into the eyes of then-Michigan athletic director Bill Martin, who hired Beilein as the program's next head men's basketball coach in 2007.

From Nazareth College to LeMoyne to Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia and finally to Michigan, Beilein has built a strong reputation for developing young players and teams.

Beilein, 66, hails from MI, where he's coached since 2007, but he has a long track record of success in amateur basketball.

Beilein racked up 278 wins while at MI with nine NCAA tournament appearances, two appearances in the Final Four, and two Big Ten season championships and two Big Ten Tournament titles.

While Howard is on the short list of the greatest Michigan Wolverines to ever step on the court in what was at the time the greatest basketball era in the university's history, it ended up being not without great controversy. The Cavs won just 19 games this past season.

Beilein helped mentor nine Wolverines selection in the NBA Draft: Darius Morris (2011, No. 41 by Los Angeles Lakers), Trey Burke (2013, No. 9 by Minnesota Timberwolves, draft-day trade to Utah Jazz), Tim Hardaway Jr.

Beilein succeeds Larry Drew in Cleveland. "Following the end of those interviews, it became clear to us that Coach Beilein was the right choice and best fit for our franchise".
