U-M basketball coach John Beilein underwent double bypass procedure

- Officials at the University of Michigan's athletics department said men's basketball coach John Beilein underwent a successful double bypass procedure. 

Director of Athletics Warde Manuel said the procedure was scheduled and took place Monday morning at the Frankel Cardiovascular Center. 

Beilein is expected to leave the hospital in a few days and be fully active by the start of the season. 

Dr. Francis D. Pagani, who performed the procedure, explained the surgery is designed to improve blood flow to the heart. 

"The operation went well, and we expect him to make a full recovery and be back to his usual activities within a few weeks," Dr. Pagani said in a press release.

Beilein completed his 11th season in Ann Arbor and his Wolverines are coming off a program-record 33 win campaign (33-8), a second straight Big Ten Tournament title and a run to the Final Four, and national title game -- a second trip in the last six years.

Already U-M's all-time leader in wins with 248, Beilein has compiled a career record of 799-461 (.628) during his 41 years as a collegiate head coach. In 11 seasons in Ann Arbor, U-M has made eight NCAA Tournament appearances with four Sweet 16 (2013, '14, '17, '18), three Elite Eight (2013, '14, '18), two Final Four and national title game (2013, 2018) runs.
