Dwyane Wade Reacts to Juwan Howard Being Named Head Coach of Michigan
- Updated: May 22, 2019

Wade has plenty of experience with Howard.
The two were teammates in Miami for three years before Howard retired. Howard then became an assistant coach with the Heat and got to coach the former NBA Finals MVP.
It goes without saying that the two are close. And Wade knows as well as anyone that Howard is deserving of the position.
Howard played his college basketball at Michigan. He’ll be returning home 25 years after finishing his playing days for the Wolverines.
Michigan had an opening after coach John Beilein left to join the Cleveland Cavaliers. The school jumped on the opportunity to sign Howard.
Howard has been in high demand as a coaching candidate. He had earned a few interviews with NBA teams following his six years as an assistant with the Heat.
