Michigan Offers Juwan Howard Head Coaching Job
Howard first departed Michigan after his junior season in 1994 to embark on a 19-year NBA career. He was a key member of Michigan's famed Fab Five recruiting class in 1991. The Chicago native and former All-American was the first of the group to commit, and was a key cog in what resulted in back-to-back NCAA title game appearances in 1992 and 1993.
Those Final Four banners have since been removed from the Crisler Center due to sanctions resulting from the Ed Martin recruiting scandal that tainted that era. Howard was not part of the group of players who were ultimately disassociated from the university for a 10-year period as a result of the scandal.
