    John Beilein has officially resigned as the head coach of the Cavs.

    Beilein is walking away just months into a five-year deal, with his tumultuous tenure making it painfully clear that the Cavs have plenty of problems to work through. He had serious troubles connecting to the Cavs, with squabbles erupting all over the place, even down to the terminology of his playbook. Beilein has been given a different role in the organization while JB Bickerstaff will take over the coaching job.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, John Beilein is leaving as the Cavs’ coach and J.B. Bickerstaff will be elevated to head coach.

    It’s still not official, but once Woj says it’s happening, it’s happening. A shake-up is likely to be a great thing for this roster that contains at least a few unhappy star players in Kevin Love and Andre Drummond. Be ready to act on any significant role changes that come with this move. For example, will Larry Nance Jr. and/or Kevin Porter Jr. take on expanded roles?

    Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Cavs and John Beilein are in advanced talks to part ways by Wednesday.

    This is escalating quickly, as it's becoming more and more apparent that Beilein won't return to the Cavs as we resume play. It is expected that J.B. Bickerstaff will take over as the lead coach for the remainder of the season. The Cavs players had a hard time adapting to Beilein's system, and this should be looked at as a win for the team's young guns.

    John Beilein and the Cavs have discussed the possibility of Beilein stepping down from his head coaching job during the All-Star break, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Beilein's transition to the NBA has not gone well, but abandoning a five-year commitment so soon would be absolutely shocking. He has struggled to make the jump from the college game, altering his game plans and terminology in an effort to help get the Cavs on the same page, though he's had a few notable off-court missteps and has had trouble relating to his players. Even if he doesn't leave in the coming days, one has to imagine that Beilein won't be in Cleveland much longer.

    The Cavs and John Beilein have agreed on a 5-year contract to become the Cavs next head coach.

    This decision came out of left field. Beilein has been the head coach for Michigan since 2007 and has a collegiate coaching record of 829 wins and 468 losses, but has never coached in the NBA. Beilein looks to have his hands full coaching a young Cavs team with a lackluster roster that finished the 2018-19 season with only 19 wins and 63 losses.

    John Beilein tweeted on Wednesday that he's looking forward to coaching Michigan's men's basketball team "next year and in the years to come."

    Beilein was in the mix for the Pistons' head coaching position, appearing to make it to the final batch of five or so candidates. Now that he looks to have taken his hat out of the ring, Detroit will likely be choosing from Dwane Casey, Ime Udoka and Kenny Smith. There are some other fringe candidates but those three have drawn the most notice so far.

    ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Michigan’s John Beilein interviewed for the Pistons’ head coaching position on Thursday.

    Beilein took the Wolverines to the national title game twice since 2007 (including a loss to Villanova this year) and is Michigan’s all-time leader in wins with a record of 248-143. Woj reported that coach Beilein has long had an interest in coaching in the NBA, but the Pistons might not finalize their decision until they find a general manager and president of basketball operations.
