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).

Beilein and MI are finalizing a contract extension, according to Brendan Quinn of The Athletic.

Michigan's athletic director Warde Manuel voiced the same feelings.

John Beilein is staying at MI.
