2019-20 Season

Phil Martelli gives sneak peek at Michigan transition

Michigan basketball under Juwan Howard will kick off in earnest this week in Ann Arbor.

The new head coach has been in charge for a couple of weeks now, but this is the first week with his full staff in place, a group that Howard praised on Jim Harbaugh’s podcast this week.

“This staff is a special staff,” Howard said. “I believe that these guys are grinders, they’re hard-workers.”

The grind starts this week. The group was announced on Friday and finished moving to Ann Arbor on Monday. After a day of compliance meetings on Tuesday, they will have their first official staff meeting on Wednesday.

Martelli gave an early look at what that transition will look like during a podcast interview this week.
