The coaching staff for Michigan basketball is in place.

On Friday, the program announced that head coach Juwan Howard has completed his staff for the 2019-20 basketball season. Howard was recently officially introduced as the next head coach of the program, filling in for the departed John Beilein.

Joining Howard’s staff will be 24-year head coaching veteran Phil Martelli, who spent most of his coaching career at St. Joseph’s. Former NBA assistant coach Howard Eisley will also join the staff in Ann Arbor.

Saddi Washington, who just completed his third season on the sidelines in Ann Arbor, will be retained by Howard.

“When I took this job, I told everyone I was looking to fill the staff with experienced basketball coaches who are egoless, hardworking and ones that will help our young men grow both on and off the court — I feel I have done that,” said Howard, according to MGoBlue.com. “Phil is so highly respected in the sport of basketball — on every level — it is an honor that he has decided to join us. He brings such a wealth of knowledge and creativity which I know will be beneficial as we move forward.

“Howard and I have known each other for a long time. We have competed against each other and risen up the NBA coaching ranks together. It’s going to be great to finally be working and collaborating together. Observing what Saddi has accomplished over his last three years has been just amazing. His versatility and coaching style resonates with kids and that will be valuable. I am so pleased he decided to remain on our staff.

“I cannot wait to get started on this journey.”

All three assistants have signed two-year deals with a third-year option.
