John Beilein isn't going anywhere. The University of Michigan men's basketball coach announced his plans to return to Ann Arbor for the 2018-19 season, and many seasons after that.

Beilein interview for the Detroit Pistons coaching vacancy after the team got rid of former coach Stan Van Gundy, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Beilein had no NBA coaching experience, but he's done a tremendous job since taking over the Michigan Wolverines in 2007.

Michigan fans will be pleased to hear Beilein isn't going anywhere.

In 11 seasons as the team's head coach, Beilein brought the Wolverines to the NCAA tournament eight times and the national title game twice - though both ended in defeat.

Just last year, Michigan was the nation's runner-up after a tough national title loss to a stacked Villanova roster.

The Michigan Man was named as CBSSports.com's Coach of the Year after a tremendous 33-8 campaign, including a Big Ten Conference Tournament win.
