John Beilein Interviews For Pistons Job

Michigan coach John Beilein is the latest big name to interview for the head coaching vacancy with the Pistons, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowksi. Beilein, who led the Wolverines to the NCAA title game this season, met with Detroit officials on Thursday.

Beilein joins an expanding lists of candidates that includes former Raptors head coach Dwane Casey, Spurs assistants Becky Hammon and Ime Udoka, Heat assistant Juwan Howard and TNT broadcaster Kenny Smith, all of whom have either interviewed for the position or are reportedly under consideration.

The Pistons, who have been without a coach since firing Stan Van Gundy more than three weeks ago, are also working to fill vacancies in their front office.

Beilein has compiled a 248-143 record in 11 years at Michigan, including two trips to the Final Four. He also coached at Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia and has compiled 541 career victories.

    All these coaching interviews but it won’t matter if they don’t get Drummond and Griffin to their want to be superstars on the side and have an approach to the game alike Al Horford who just does what’s best for the team. If Blake and Drummond can focus on that more than the Pistons can be very dangerous next season otherwise they are a 8th seed and first round exit.
