Howard played at Michigan from 1991-1994, where he was a member of the famed Fab 5. He was selected by the Washington Bullets with the fifth overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft. He would go on to play in the NBA until 2013, making one All-Star team and winning two championships in that time. He's spent the past six seasons as an assistant coach with the Miami Heat.
He's tasked with replacing John Beilein, who led the Wolverines to two Final Four appearances and back-to-back Big Ten tournament titles in 2017 and 2018.
This will be the 46-year-old Howard's first head coaching gig.
