Michigan hires assistant hoops coaches Donlon and Washington

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan has hired assistant basketball coaches Billy Donlon and Saddi Washington.

Wolverines coach John Beilein announced the moves Wednesday.

Beilein had to replace two key coaches on his staff because Bacari Alexander was hired to lead the Detroit Titans and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee hired LaVall Jordan.

Donlon was 109-94 and was the 2013 Horizon League coach of the year in a six-season run with Wright State, which fired him in March after a 22-win season.

Washington had been an assistant at Oakland University for 10 seasons.
