After visiting with the Detroit Pistons twice about their recent head coaching opening, MI men's basketball's all-time wins leader announced Wednesday that he'll remain in Ann Arbor.
John Beilein has been a college basketball coach for 40 years, and he isn't going to switch tracks now.
"It became very clear to me where I was meant to finish coaching", Beilein told the Free Press.
Udoka was scheduled to meet with Gores on Wednesday in a second meeting with the organization, sources said.
Next season will be Beilein's 12th at MI.

As we reported Friday , the outbreak has affected some 60 people in five states, including 32 in MI and 11 in Indiana. In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.
Beilein and MI are finalizing a contract extension, according to Brendan Quinn of The Athletic.
The new deal also comes with a rolling extension that keeps Beilein's contract at five years. He's said repeatedly his intention is to ensure Beilein one day retires at MI. U-M has not released any information about a potential extension, though it's clear athletic director Warde Manuel is working on one. Beilein has won a pair of Big Ten championships and two Big Ten Tournament titles.
The flirtation between John Beilein and the Detroit Pistons is over.
