Michigan is coming off its best season since the Fab Five days on the early-to-mid 90s, and with that has come added criticism and praise.

Well Wolverine assistant coach Bacari Alexander, fresh off a Twitter hiatus, decided to pile on the praise on Monday, tweeting out progress reports to every player on the Michigan roster.

Here are a few gems that the serial-tweeting Alexander sent out.

It’s an interesting subject to learn that Horford is “on track to finish early”. One would assume that means his degree program (what else would it mean?). Horford averaged 2.7 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.8 minutes per game last season. He missed seven games due to injury.

So long as he keeps that jumper, right?

Alexander also made sure to let fans know that the nucleus of the Michigan coaching staff doesn’t plan on going anywhere in the near future.

Alexander has been at the school since under coach John Beilein. He’s a Detroit native and a product of the famed Detroit Southwestern High School program. He played collegiately at Robert Morris and Detroit Mercy.

    LaVall Jordan (recently up for the Butler job) and Bacari Alexander are really a huge part of Michigan’s late surge in the tournament and 3-4 year rise back to being a top program. John Beilein is a fantastic coach and recruiter, and he really can put a staff together. Of course, these two assistants will probably move on to a head coaching gig soon, but on the bright side, there will be legitimate options to take over when Beilein inevitably retires.
