John Beilein is one month removed from taking Michigan to the national championship game for the second time in six years.

He's working on a deal to shoot for more.

Beilein is talking with Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel about a contract extension, he told reporters on Monday.

He signed an extension in 2015 that goes through 2020-21. 

Beilein said to "stay tuned" for news on a contract extension, according to the Free Press.

"As a matter of fact we are (talking about that),” Beilein said. “Warde and I have been so busy and apart, but we’re working on that right now."

Michigan lost to Villanova in the national championship, after capturing the school's second consecutive Big Ten Tournament championship.
