Patrick Beilein, current graduate manager at University of Michigan, was hired by newly-instated head coach, Paul Cormier, as an assistant coach for the men’s basketball team. Beilein leaves Michigan after two years of working alongside his father and Wolverine head coach, John Beilein. “I wanted him to go out and experience other coaches and learn from other coaches,” John Beilein told Annarbor.com. “Patrick wanted to get on the floor.”Graduating in 2006 from West Virginia University, Beilein played for four years for the Mountaineers and finished his career with 1,001 points. Opting to continue playing after graduation, Beilein got a taste of professional basketball after a one-year stint with UCD Marian in Ireland from 2007-2008 before settling to work under his father at Michigan. The assistant coaching position at Dartmouth is Patrick Beilein’s first coaching stint. He will join Cormier in his first season coaching the Big Green after a subpar 2009-2010 campaign that saw former head coach Terry Dunn step down mid-season.
