Default Illinois fires basketball coach

http://espn.go.com/chicago/ncb/story...eber-loses-job

Quote:
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Illinois fired Bruce Weber on Friday, letting go of a fiery coach whose first three years with the Illini included a run to the national championship game before a long, lackluster slide the past six years that concluded with a 17-15 mark this season.


"Bruce is everything you'd want as a coach," athletic director Mike Thomas said at a news conference that Weber did not attend. "We had great success here but in the last four or five years, I don't know if you want to say [that] we're running in place, or maybe even digressed."
Interesting

We won't go after or hire him but he could improve our program. Guy made runs and put players in NBA. Saying something positive about him rather than negative about Horn cause that didn't work out too well for me on here before.

I think he's overrated.

He won with Bill Self's (Kansas' current coach) players (Dee Brown, Deron Williams, Luther Head the team that were runners up) and then once those guys left hasn't really had great success. Of course better than ours, but it's a much different job than the last one he had.
