Juwan Howard has reportedly been offered the job in Ann Arbor.

According to a report from Jin Rothstein, Juwan Howard has been offered the opportunity to be the next head basketball coach at Michigan, replacing the vacancy left by John Beilein.

Howard met with Michigan Athletic Director Warde Manuel on Tuesday about the position. He was one of three strong candidates for the position, along with Providence head coach Ed Cooley and current Wolverines assistant Luke Yuklich.

Howard has been a name ESPN analysts Jay Williams and Jalen Rose have thrown out for the job. Rose, who was a teammate of Howard’s at Michigan, said it is a “no brainer” to bring Howard back to Ann Arbor, considering his knowledge, credibility and experience.

It appears that Manuel felt the same way.

While Howard doesn’t have any experience as a head coach, he has spent the last six years serving as an assistant coach for the NBA’s Miami Heat. That, along with being a member of the Fab Five, provides Howard with a strong foundation to continue moving the Michigan program in the right direction.
