Report: John Beilein interviews for Pistons coaching job

John Beilein

The Detroit Pistons are looking at some very surprising candidates for their open head coaching position.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Pistons interviewed Michigan basketball coach John Beilein for their vacant position on Thursday.

This is a pretty big surprise, as Beilein hasn’t been linked to NBA jobs at all. He also turns 66 in February. He’s been extremely successful at Michigan, having just led last year’s team to the national title game, and is regarded as one of the college game’s better teachers. It would have wide repercussions for the Wolverine program if he were to leave.

Ultimately, the Pistons may opt for a candidate with more NBA experience, but Beilein is certainly an interesting name to watch in this search.
