ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)— John Beilein says he was never offered the Detroit Pistons' coaching job, but if he had been, it would have been a tough decision.

Beilein is now looking ahead to another season of college basketball after briefly emerging as a candidate for the Pistons. Not long after the news broke about Beilein's talks with Detroit, he said he'd be back at Michigan. The Pistons eventually hired Dwane Casey earlier this month.

On Tuesday, Beilein held a news conference to talk about the offseason. He says he was impressed with the Pistons' organization and will be rooting for them.
