Report: Beilein has made $100K in bonuses for Michigan's NCAA Tournament run
The Wolverines head coach is cashing in on his team's tourney run
It’s good to be John Beilein. The head coach of Michigan has guided his team to seven consecutive wins, including two this weekend to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. And now he’s cashing in on the whole thing. According to Steve Berkowitz of USA TODAY, Beilein has already collected $100,000 in bonuses this postseason, adding $25,000 after upsetting Louisville on Sunday.
The Wolverines’ magical run began as an 8-seed in the Big Ten Tournament. They barely even made it to the conference tournament after a plane crash involving the team derailed their original travel schedule. But almost miraculously, Michigan hasn’t lost since -- and they’ll play Oregon next week for a chance to advance to the Elite 8.
Michigan’s odds of winning the national title are 18/1, according to the, so it’s a longshot that this story ends with a national championship trophy in hand. But if the Wolverines can pull it off, Beilein would almost certainly cash in several times over.
