Jeff Goodman: Michigan gives Juwan Howard a new 5-year contract that will run through 2025-26, school announced. Howard has been one of the outliers of former NBA players coming to college and being successful as coach.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: Michigan’s Juwan Howard continues to tell NBA teams he's not interested in even a discussion on leaving Ann Arbor. Teams are also calling to gather intel on Memphis coach Penny Hardaway's work. He's going to get offers to interview for openings in this NBA job cycle.
Thursday afternoon on ESPN's Jalen & Jacoby, Juwan Howard opened up about his past two years as Michigan's head men's basketball coach as he took a glance at his future from the sidelines. "I'm in Ann Arbor to stay, baby," he said. "I love Michigan, I love my job and I'm enjoying it and this experience. I'm also looking forward to growing each and every year and developing these young men to become the best versions of themselves as a student-athlete. This is a dream job for me. I think my passion last year showed how much I appreciate being in this position.”
Juwan Howard: "The NBA, it's a beautiful game. They have great coaches there, amazing, talented players, a beautiful brand. But I enjoyed that experience for 25 years, 19 as a player and six as a coach. I'm going to stay and keep growing with Michigan. Go Blue."
Juwan Howard: There was a report of my name as a potential candidate for nba coaching opportunities. While I am flattered, and know it will more than likely happen again, I am not exploring, seeking or listening. I am the head coach at the university of Michigan! I am blessed to be working at the greatest university in the world. I am blessed to be guiding a group of wonderful young men. We have goals, dreams & championships to win this is where my focus is. Go blue!
