WATCH: When Michigan's Andrew Dakich saw the cops, John Beilein knew all was OK
Terrifying-turned-awesome moment results in full scholarship for Wolverines' senior guard
Andrew Dakich's life may have flashed right before his eyes Monday. Campus police made a surprise visit to the Michigan basketball team room, naming the Wolverines guard in several investigations and requesting immediate attention from the Unversity Compliance office.
Dakich nearly lost it, getting on the edge of his seat in disbelief.
But they had good news. Coach John Beilein sent the two officers to deliver the news that Dakich was being placed on full scholarship. In the end, a terrifying, yet well-executed prank.
We've all seen sappy videos where coaches make great speeches, thank the player in question for his contributions, then hand him a scholarship in front of the team. Tears flow and it's an emotional moment. But Beilein went a decidedly different route.
