ESPN.com: Who will be the top candidates in Michigan coaching search?
The college basketball world was stunned on Monday morning when ESPN broke the news that the Cleveland Cavaliers had hired Michigan's John Beilein as their next head coach.

Athletic director Warde Manuel is now placed in a difficult spot.
