Click for: mlive.com: WMU Coach calls LaVall Jordan hire "tampering"
And Beilein's response: "I am surprised by the reaction of Coach Hawkins because I thought we were on the same page. Obviously, we have an unfortunate misunderstanding. I did contact Coach Hawkins when I was informed of a potential staff vacancy here at Michigan. LaVall was a finalist for our previous open coaching position and was well thought of during that process. After the call to Steve, I stepped away to allow LaVall and Coach Hawkins to discuss his future. LaVall contacted me after he reached an understanding with Coach Hawkins. In the end LaVall made a career choice for he and his family."
