    Dusty May, the most coveted coach in the Coaching Carousel, is leaving Florida Atlantic to replace Juwan Howard at Michigan.

    May agreed to a five-year deal, with an average value of $3.75 million annually.

    The school made it official Sunday after it was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

    May, who last April got 10-year contract at FAU worth more than $15 million, had also been linked to the Louisville and Vanderbilt openings.

    “The University of Michigan is among the elite institutions in the world and it is both an honor and privilege to be named its head men’s basketball coach,” said May in a statement. “This is a dream come true for me, my wife Anna, and my boys Jack, Charlie and Eli. I want to offer my thanks to President Santa Ono, Athletics Director Warde Manuel and the U-M Board of Regents for this opportunity.”
