Michigan assistant basketball coach Saddi Washington says coach John Beilein is doing well in his recovery from a double-bypass heart procedure earlier in the week.

Washington didn't give too many details about Beilein before Thursday's practice. Washington is serving as interim coach for the time being.

Beilein's operation took place Monday at the University of Michigan's Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center. He's expected to make a full recovery.

The Wolverines have a trip to Spain coming up from Aug. 17-26, and Beilein won't be going on that.

The 43-year-old Washington is entering his third season as an assistant at Michigan.
