Juwan Howard fired by Michigan basketball after 5 seasons

Juwan Howard will not return as head coach of the Michigan basketball program for the 2024-25 season.

U-M AD Warde Manuel parted with Howard on Friday after five seasons.

“After a comprehensive review of the program, I have decided that Juwan will not return as our men’s basketball coach,” Manuel said in a statement released Friday. “Juwan is among the greatest Wolverines to ever be associated with our basketball program. I know how much it meant, to not only Juwan, but to all of us for him to return here to lead this program. Despite his love of his alma mater and the positive experience that our student-athletes had under his leadership, it was clear to me that the program was not living up to our expectations and not trending in the right direction.
