It’s official: As reported by ESPN, the Illinois Fighting Illini basketball team has fired head coach Bruce Weber after a horribly disappointing finish to a 17-15 season.
His six NCAA tournament appearances in nine seasons couldn’t save him from this train wreck.
Now, the Illini are faced with the tough task of finding a new head coach.
But, with so many fantastic coaches at the mid-major level, finding the right guy shouldn’t be too difficult.
If the Illini hire one of these five guys, they should be just fine.
