Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores issues statement on John Beilein hire

The Detroit Pistons officially welcomed a local legend with the hiring of former University of Michigan Wolverines head coach John Beilein as Senior Advisor of Player Development:

Team owner Tom Gores praised the move, describing him as one of the game’s top educators.

“We all know he is one of the best teachers in the game of basketball at any level. Dwane’s decision and desire to bring him on board underscores our commitment to helping this young Pistons team maximize its potential.”

Beilein was the winningest head coach in Wolverines basketball history and led the team to success on the hardwood that few could equal. Regarded as one of the top bench bosses in college basketball, Beilein led the Wolverines to multiple championship games and numbers accolades.

He then decided to take his talents to the NBA to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers, an ill-fated tenure that ended less than one year into his five-year contract.
