Juwan Howard has pre-emptively rebuked any preliminary offers for NBA coaching jobs. The current University of Michigan head coach had been “gaining traction within front offices” according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Howard’s official response posted to Twitter, however, appears definitive: “There was a report of my name as a potential candidate for NBA coaching opportunities. While I am flattered, and know it will more likely happen again, I am not exploring, seeking or listening. I am the head coach at the University of Michigan.”

Howard previously played for eight NBA teams, including the 2009-10 season with the Trail Blazers. Howard averaged 6.0 points and 4.6 rebouds per game in 73 appearances for the Blazers.
