John Beilein will be leaving the University of Michigan to be the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He took to Twitter one last time as the head of the program to express his gratitude to all that have been involved in his tenure at Michigan:

Beilein and U of M will not be holding a press conference today so this may be the only official statement we get from him before he heads to Cleveland.

Beilein was 278-150 (.650) in twelve seasons as the head of the Michigan program. He leaves as one of the most heralded and beloved coaches in program history.
