Is Juwan Howard the right choice for Michigan basketball?
No matter where Juwan Howard has gone, he's been a winner. He was a key member of Michigan's Fab Five that went to two straight National Championship Games in the 90s and won a championship with the Miami Heat.
He might not have head coaching experience, but he has renowned toughness and drive that will be easy to teach young players. If he has the respect of the greatest players ever, he should have no trouble coaching kids.
Being an assistant coach at the NBA level is hard, but being a head coach of a college program is harder. There are so many balls in the air from recruiting to academics you have to worry about. Then, you actually have to teach a winning system to sustain the success created by your predecessor.
That's a lot of pressure on a first-time head coach and a lot of things that can go wrong. A more experienced candidate should have been the choice at Michigan.
