Coach John Beilein has been shaped by a rich Jesuit background. He attended and played basketball for Wheeling Jesuit University (now Wheeling University) for his undergrad years, and worked with the Jesuits later as head coach at two of their schools, Le Moyne College (Syracuse, NY), and Canisius College (Buffalo, NY). Coach Beilein grew up in upstate New York watching his Jesuit hometown team, Canisius Golden Griffins, only to return there fo his first Division I head coaching position, to reinvigorate the team and help it earn two National Invitation Tournament bids and one NCAA Tournament appearance in five years. He has coached more than nine teams during his career.
Most recently Coach Beilein served as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and prior to that he was the all-time winningest coach with the University of Michigan Wolverines in 12 seasons, while also teaching courses in leadership and coaching.
Coach Beilein’s celebrated career includes being one of five coaches that have lead 5 different colleges to the NCAA tournament, 8 NBA first Round Draft Picks, 2019 Coach Wooden “Keys to Life” Award, 2018 CBS Sports National Coach of the Year, 2013 and 2108 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Runner-up, 2 Final Four appearances (2013, 2018), 2 Big Ten regular Season Championships (2012, 2014), 2 Big Ten Tournament Champions (2017, 2018) and an impressive overall, 829 College Wins.
