The video went viral on social media before Michigan coach Juan Howard even celebrated the 2022 NCAA Tournament victory with the players, and he hugged former Fab 5 teammates Chris Weber and Ray Jackson before heading to the locker room.
Howard was walking along the handshake line – the same line where his activities had suspended him about four weeks ago – when he stopped and hugged Kennedy’s new Tennessee guard, Kennedy Chandler.
Howard talks to his 11-seed Wolverines 3-seed volunteers at 76-68, hugging a very emotional chandler after moving to Suite 16 for the fifth year in a row.
“He told me to keep my head up,” Chandler said. “It’s hard for me, and he knew I wanted to win. I know him. I played with her son from fourth grade. So I have known him for a long time. He is a great coach. I love him. He told me to keep my head up and you spoke your heart out, that’s what he told me. “
After the game and the teams shook hands, coach Howard found his former teammate and also congratulated the coach on his victory.

It was a very different picture when Howard was criticized a few weeks ago for quarreling with a Wisconsin coach after losing to Michigan Wisconsin.
