Juwan Howard added associate head coach to Phil Martelli’s title.
Yaklich is fuming
Probably allows Michigan to pay him more than the other assistants.
Pardon my profound ignorance, but is this a common position among many collegiate staffs? Don’t ever recall JB ever having one. I’ve heard “Head Assistant Coach” thrown about (though I’m not sure if in an official capacity), but I don’t recall “Associate Head Coach.”
Jerry Dunn was the last associate head coach that Michigan had. It’s basically used as a promotion for assistants
MSU has one.
It would have been hard to give it to Yak or Saddi if Juwan kept Beilein’s staff. That’s probably true a lot of places. Giving the title to Martelli seems like a no brainer since he already has the role and the higher pay to go along with it.
