CLEVELAND (WJW)– John Beilein is leaving his position as head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers mid-season, ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday night.
Beilein, who was head coach in May, is expected to say goodbye to staff and players on Wednesday as the team returns from the All-Star Break.
Associate head coach J.B. Bickerstaff will take over as head coach. Wojnarowski said the appointment is not on an interim basis.
Beilein, 67, was the longtime coach at Michigan before agreeing to a five-year contract with the Cavs.
