ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Juwan Howard wiped tears of joy off his cheeks as he sat with his family. Moments later, he was formally introduced as Michigan's basketball coach.
Howard then got up and hugged athletic director Warde Manuel, who triggered even more tears from the former member of the Fab Five. Warde held up a maize No. 25 jersey, like the one Howard wore on the same court in the early 1990s.
When it was Howard's turn to speak, the former NBA standout and Miami Heat assistant coach was so overcome with emotion he needed more than 30 seconds to compose himself.
