Interesting paragraph from Brendan Quinn’s article about John Beilein from The Athletic:

All he asks of his players, in return, is to listen and learn. Beilein does not want to be a parental figure to his players. He wants to be their coach. The job, as he sees it, is to develop players into their best selves. As one member of the Michigan staff explained on Monday: “At Michigan, we were never caught up in relationships or had those issues. It was business, not emotional. Beilein doesn’t ask you to love him. In his mind, it’s, ‘I’m gonna make you so good, and that’s why you’ll love me.’”
