Michigan coach John Beilein, new deal in hand, shrugs off questions of retirement

Michigan coach John Beilein's new contract will keep him with the Wolverines through the 2018-19 season. Whether retirement awaits after that, he isn't ready to say.

The 60-year-old coach will make $2.45 million in annual compensation under the new deal. The three-year extension replaced his previous contract and he is set through the 2018-19 season. He says "at least" — suggesting he might coach longer.

Beilein says there was no sense of urgency to get a deal done, but added it felt good knowing he could make incoming high school juniors a promise he'd be there if they signed with Michigan.
