During an appearance on ESPN’s Jalen & Jacoby, Juwan Howard said he has no interest in leaving Michigan for the NBA. ESPN reported Howard will be a leading candidate for several NBA head coaching vacancies this offseason.

“I’m in Ann Arbor to stay, baby,” Howard said. “I love Michigan, I love my job and I’m enjoying it and this experience. I’m also looking forward to growing each and every year and developing these young men to become the best versions of themselves as a student-athlete.

“This is a dream job for me. I think my passion last year showed how much I appreciate being in this position.

“The NBA, it’s a beautiful game. They have great coaches there, amazing, talented players, a beautiful brand. But I enjoyed that experience for 25 years, 19 as a player and six as a coach. I’m going to stay and keep growing with Michigan. Go Blue.”

Howard was an assistant coach with the Miami Heat from 2013 until he was hired by Michigan in 2019.
