John Beilein, the head coach of the University of MI men's basketball team, tweeted Wednesday that he's excited about coaching for U of M for years to come. On Wednesday morning, it was reported that the head coach was considered one of the top candidates to take over the Detroit Pistons.

The 65-year-old Beilein has coached at MI for 11 seasons.

"Casey met with Detroit owner Tom Gores on Tuesday, league sources tell ESPN - and now, Michigan's John Beilein has pulled out of Pistons search". He's won 724 games and made the NCAA Tournament 12 times, going at least once at every Division I school he's coached at (Canisius, Richmond, West Virginia and Michigan). The extension was in the works before Beilein interviewed with the Pistons and was not a result of his decision to meet with the National Basketball Association team.

"We are thrilled that John Beilein will be our coach now and into the future", athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement.
