While I'm willing to go on the record and say that at least at one point, Beilein was a very very good coach, I'm now willing to move on. I also don't think Beilein is going to be fired at the end of the season. That being said, he is trending towards the hot seat and hopefully this thread can serve as an outlet for people who want Beilein gone to suggest an alternative.
Here are some candidate ideas::
Greg Marshall, Wichita State:
Tremendous record, 444-172 overall in his career, took Wichita to the Final Four. I'm going to guess he's a long shot, but he did show interest in Texas a few years ago, so might be willing to explore Michigan.
Larry Krystkowiak, Utah:
Took over a complete trainwreck in Utah, and has built them into a solid team. No geographic connections however.
Randy Bennett, Saint Mary's:
Surprised no one has hired him yet. Always has that program playing well, and if you like Australians, than he's a home run hire. Not the greatest geographical fit.
Chris Mack, Xavier:
Has had some success at Xavier while also has recruiting connections. Hasn't really been able to take that program to the next step however.
Kevin Ollie, UConn:
Hired by our current AD, won a NC. However has been a bit hit or miss with his own players.
Fred Hoiberg, Chicago Bulls:
On the NBA hot seat now, so might be available. Has familiarity with Big 10 country, did really well with Iowa State which included recruiting a former Mr. Michigan Basketball player. However his time with the Bulls hasn't been impressive and built Iowa State through transfers.
Ben Jacobson, Northern Iowa:
His team always seems like they are an NCAA tourney pest, and I imagine it isn't easy to recruit players to Northern Iowa. Still kinda young.
Kermit Davis, Middle Tennessee State
While his last two years have been good, he's been at MTSU forever and didn't start to have success untill now. Older guy at age 57. But on the other hand, f*** Michigan State.
*EDIT* Archie Miller, Dayton:
I don't know how I forgot about him. Has killed it at Dayton, and is young.
