Michigan investigating Juwan Howard after altercation with coach as rumors swirl
Another Michigan coach is under investigation.
Wolverines basketball coach Juwan Howard reportedly had a confrontation with a strength and conditioning coach that is being investigated by an entity not associated with the schools athletic department per school procedures, according to The Athletic.
While rumors swirled Sunday that Howard would be stepping down, he is still the schools head coach, according to The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn.
Howards status became a hot topic Sunday night when a fake account tweeted that Howard is stepping down and assistant coach Phil Martelli will be the interim coach.
The tweet from @JomRothstein impersonating college hoops insider Jon Rothstein said Howard would still remain on the staff as an assistant coach.
Martelli has been serving as head coach while Howard recovers from a heart procedure, although Howard is still on the bench.
