Coach Belein is widely regarded as one of the hardest working and intelligent coaches in America. He is well known for running a very clean program and treating players, coaches and referrees with respect. Yet the refs always seem to screw the team over every time they hit the court.

I'll agree with this.  You can chastise Amaker for not being very good at on-court stuff, but the man was beyond reproach off the court.  He was exactly what Michigan needed at the time - squeaky clean enough that everyone knew it, extremely respected due to his coach K pedigree, and a great family guy.  He took the program at the lowest point in its existence and made it respectable enough that people forgot about the sanctions (for the most part).  Hiring that guy was the next best move after Tom Goss was relieved of duty.

(Getting rid of Ellerbe goes hand in hand with hiring Amaker.  Ellerbe...  Ugh.)

I’ve been hard on Beliein, even at one point thought we should move on from him, but at the end of the day, there is no one I’d rather have coaching Michigan basketball

This video reminds me of the ones shown during the NC run in 2013. I really believe we have the two best coaches Michigan can possibly have right now with Harbaugh and Beilein.

This guy is a legend...I too was off my rocker thinking we needed a shakeup during last season’s struggles. However, I can admit I was horribly wrong! If Beilein keeps winning at this rate and grabs that elusive National title. I think he is a lock Naismith Hall of Famer! Guy does it the right way and more importantly is excellent at his craft. He will have his name in the rafters at Crisler and the court should be dedicated to him once his time is up here.
