Goldin, who is from Russia, played one season at Texas Tech before transferring to FAU.

May was announced as Michigan's coach on March 24 after six seasons at FAU, which he led to the NCAA Final Four in 2023.

Goldin is the sixth player from the transfer portal to land at Michigan. The Wolverines fired fifth-year coach Juwan Howard on March 18 after an 8-24 season.
