3 absolute long-shot head coaches for Michigan Basketball

With Juwan Howard gone, Michigan basketball and Warde Manuel can shift the focus on getting the Wolverines back to where the football program presently lies with three unrealistic coaching candidates.

3. Tommy Lloyd Arizona

Mark Few's assistant for two decades has won over 80% of his games in just three seasons at Arizona. He has the most wins in NCAA history in his first two seasons. He's brought the Wildcats back to the days of Lute Olsen and Mike Bibby without a title yet. Like Brian Dutcher, he's paid his dues as a lifer in the college basketball universe.

Lloyd will be joining the Big 12 in the fall where he shouldn't dominate like he did in the Pac-12, because of Kansas, Houston, Iowa State and Baylor, but I wouldn't discount his chances by any means. The conference will be better in basketball than football. If that's the case then why not try the Big Ten on for size?


He's already earned coach of the year honors and has sent players to the NBA. Lloyd is going to win a national championship as a head coach someday. Warde Manuel can make that happen for Michigan basketball if the two magically agree to work together.
