John Beilein leaving Michigan for the Cavs – What does this mean for the scope of Big Ten hoops?

– John Beilein, one of the top-2 coaches in the conference, is leaving Michigan for the NBA. Beilein, especially with what he did at UM in turning that program around, will be highly regarded as ‘great’ college basketball coach, but will he work in the NBA?

– How does the conference stack up now in terms of coaching in the Big Ten? Izzo is the only coach in the Big 10 with Final Four experience. Painter and Miller have made Final Fours. Where does Hoiberg rank among the coaches in the conference?

– Who can Michigan bring in as a basketball coach? It’s really late in the game. Is that program good enough for an elite, highly-lauded basketball coach?

– Also this is funny, Dan Gilbert, a MSU grad, stole away Michigan’s coach.
