The winningest coach in the University of Michigan’s history is heading out the door.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Beilein will sign a five year deal to be the next coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“Michigan’s John Beilein has agreed to a five-year deal to become coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources tell ESPN,” said Adrian Wojnarowski. “Talks escalated over the weekend, with a deal reached on Sunday. Beilein informed his administration on Monday morning of his decision to make the leap to the NBA, and is telling his players now.”

In 12 years as Michigan’s head coach, Beilein went 278-150 with two Big Ten titles, two Big Ten Tournament titles, and two National Championship game appearances.

Last year, it was reported that he was interested in the Pistons job, showing his interest in the NBA.  Now, the 66 year old coach is off to the the Cavaliers.

Michigan and Beilein have not yet spoken to the media.
