Coach John Beilein Statement on Contract Settlement


With this agreement the matter of my contract with West Virginia has been resolved.

Although it is the time to look ahead to a promising future of University of Michigan Basketball, my family and I will always treasure the five years we spent in West Virginia. We will miss the great fans of West Virginia University and especially the young men who just helped us win the 2007 NIT Championship.

Bob Huggins is a fortunate man to have an opportunity to coach this special group of student-athletes who will be returning from that team. I am sure what they were able to accomplish with that NIT postseason run will always be remembered in Mountaineer Basketball history.

I will take great pride in following the future success of that team and all of the other student-athletes who I had the privilege to coach while at West Virginia.
