APNewsBreak: Michigan signs Beilein through '18-19

Michigan coach John Beilein isn't going anywhere soon.

Athletic director Dave Brandon told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Beilein has signed a three-year extension that replaces his previous contract and keeps him with the Wolverines through the 2018-19 season. The 60-year-old Beilein will make $2.45 million a year in total compensation.

Michigan hired Beilein in March 2007, a week after he led West Virginia to the NIT championship. Last year, the Wolverines tied a school record with 31 wins and lost in the NCAA championship game to Louisville.

Beilein's previous contract extension - his second with the school - was agreed to during the 2010-11 season and kept him under contract through 2015-16. He signed that deal a season after taking Michigan to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1998.

Now, Beilein is getting another contract after leading the Wolverines to their first national championship game appearance in two decades.

Everywhere Beilein has been, from little schools to one of the biggest, he has won.

The native of Burt, N.Y., has a career record of 673-403. His first job was at Erie (N.Y.) Community College during the 1978-82 season and he went on to coach at Nazareth, LeMoyne, Canisius, Richmond and West Virginia.

With his first contract at Michigan, Beilein became the school's highest-paid basketball coach ever with a six-year deal that was worth $1.3 million a season plus bonuses.

``If you look at my paycheck, there ought to be pressure,'' Beilein said at his first news conference in Ann Arbor.

Former athletic director Bill Martin, who hired Beilein to replace Tommy Amaker, said back then that negotiations with Beilein took 10 seconds in part because Beilein said his $2.5 million buyout at West Virginia was his responsibility.
