The Athletic article on Beilein as a JV coach

Submitted by redjugador24 on February 12th, 2019 at 2:48 PM

Brendan Quinn over at The Athletic put out a pretty cool story about Beilein's first season as a coach - as a 22 year old JV coach at his high school alma mater.  It was evident way back then he was a great teacher and communicator, and awesome that he kept his own detailed stats.  Also very cool that the players from that first team he coached some 40 plus years ago stay in touch with him and attend a game together every year.  Not that we needed it, but just further proof that JB is a great guy doing it for the right reasons.  Well worth the read IMO.

I have relatives in Newfane believe it or not. Always bizarre to me when I'm there that Beilein really is from there. Pretty cool that one of the greatest D1 coaches ever is from that tiny little town
