Roughly a week after losing the greatest coach the men’s basketball program had ever seen, Michigan brought back one of its own in an effort to fill the void.

Juwan Howard, a former Michigan All-American forward and member of the famed Fab Five recruiting class, agreed in principle to become the program’s new head coach Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.
The deal, according to the person, is a five-year contract. The financial terms have not been made available at this time. Howard was officially offered the job by Michigan on Wednesday after meeting with athletic director Warde Manuel on Tuesday.
Howard, 46, has been hired to replace John Beilein — the program’s all-time winningest coach — who ended his 12-year run at the school last Monday to become the new head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
