John Beilein finally clinched his first Final Four berth on Sunday afternoon, as Michigan routed Florida in the South Regional final. Then, the calm and collected 60-year-old coach celebrated by joining the apparently never-ending Harlem Shake craze with his team. Courtesy of WDFN1130.com, the evidence of Beilein and the Wolverines — led by senior Corey Person — busting out the Harlem Shake during their plane ride home from Dallas on Sunday night.

The Wolverines’ Sunday celebration lasted well into the night — after their joyful flight back to Michigan, the team was greeted in Ann Arbor by a crowd of exuberant fans outside Crisler Center.
