The Cavs have officially offered him a contract to be the next coach, and he wanted to have a word with his team.
Izzo told his team he has talked to the Cavs about their coaching vacancy, and implored the players to concentrate on their classes and workouts to get better on and off the court.
He did not tell the team he was going to accept the job, and according to a source in the meeting, he didn’t hint one way or the other.
Izzo has a meeting scheduled with the Cavs front office on Thursday.
Izzo’s decision may hinge on whether or not Lebron James re-signs with the team.
The Detroit News reported that Izzo already turned down an offer this offseason to coach the Chicago Bulls.
