(ANN ARBOR) – Michigan men's basketball coach John Beilein, who led his program to its second national title game in five years last season, has undergone a successful heart procedure, the school announced Tuesday. Beilein is expected to recover fully after he's released from the University of Michigan's Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center, where his double bypass procedure was performed. Per the school, he'll be ready for the 2018-19 season. But Beilein, 65, will miss the team's exhibition trip to Spain later this month. Assistant Saddi Washington will lead the team as Beilein recovers. In a statement, Beilein says he feels grateful and blessed that this surgery was performed at the University of Michigan. Beilein says he is working hard in his rehabilitation to be stronger than ever by the time practice begins for the upcoming season.
