The mid-major coaches Michigan should consider to replace John Beilein--Mid-Major Madness
Scott Nagy, Wright State

If it’s worth anything, Nagy’s background has a tinge of Beilein to it. The Wright State coach didn’t incrementally work his way up the basketball ladder like Beilein did, but he did make his first mark as a head coach in Division II with South Dakota State. He then oversaw the Jackrabbits transition to Division I and growth into a Summit League power and NCAA tournament mainstay, with three appearances from 2011-2016. He’s continued winning in Dayton, leading the Raiders to 66 wins over his three seasons, including an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2018 and NIT bid this past season. He’s also got some major points in his favor, such as an adaptable style and big-time recruiting wins (Nate Wolters, Mike Daum).
And of course we’d be remiss not to mention:

Greg Kampe, Oakland

Your annual reminder that the site favorite has won over 600 games, and at a program in the state of Michigan to boot. Don’t leave us though, Greg.

Mike Davis, Detroit

A former Big Ten regular season winning coach — and four-time conference coach of the year — is right down the road. Give it a think?
