Former Michigan basketball coach John Beilein isn't exactly the most active of Twitter users. A quick look at his account shows that he takes to the social media site about once per month. But he's going to give Michigan fans plenty of reason to follow him closely tonight for a very special occasion.

On Sunday, the Big Ten Network announced that Beilein will be live tweeting their re-broadcast of the 2013 Final Four game between Michigan and Syracuse. Beilein confirmed the announcement on Monday morning in his first tweet since February.

"Looking forward to watching this replay with college basketball fans everywhere tonight at 8 pm Et #goblue," Beilein wrote.

The game is slated for 8 p.m. EST on the Big Ten Network and goes down in many fans' eyes as perhaps the best game of Beilein's tenure at Michigan.

After racing out to an 11-point halftime lead, the Wolverines watched the Orange rally in the second half to give them a second-half scare. But Beilein's team managed to hold off Syracuse to secure their first of two trips to the national title game.

Tim Hardaway Jr. led the team 13 points, while Mitchell McGary had 12 rebounds and six assists.

Tonight will definitely be a fun one for Wolverines fans everywhere.
