2018 Speaker: Coach John Beilein
Considered to be one of the best tactical basketball minds in the country, U-M's David and Meredith Kaplan Men's Basketball Head Coach John Beilein has continued to be an innovator in college basketball during his four decades patrolling the sidelines. Beginning his 11th season, he has collected a program-record 215 victories and guided U-M to seven NCAA Tournament appearances, including reaching the Sweet 16 in three of the last five years, back-to-back Elite Eights and a trip to the Final Four in 2013 following a 20-year absence.
Beilein has led the Wolverines to a pair of Big Ten regular season crowns, earning a share of the 2012 Big Ten regular season title with a 13-5 record -- the first for the program since 1986 and the program's first outright Big Ten crown in 28 years in 2014 with a 15-3 record, winning the league by three games. Last season, Beilein and his Wolverines survived a plane accident prior to leaving for the Big Ten Tournament. After reaching Washington, D.C., U-M rattled off four-straight wins to claim the conference tournament and earn an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.
The 2013 Big Ten Coach of the Year, Beilein has guided 12 Wolverines to All-Big Ten honors as well as coaching Trey Burke and Nik Stauskas to back-to-back Big Ten Player of the Year honors (2013 & '14). Additionally, Beilein has had eight Wolverines selected in the NBA Draft, with six first round and two top-10 selections.
