Illinois Coaching Search: No Press Conference Scheduled For Wednesday

No press conference has been scheduled by the Illinois Fighting Illini to announce a new head coach of the men's basketball team, as a school spokesperson told Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. It had been reportedly previously that Illinois was closing on a deal with Ohio's John Groce, but it appears that those talks have hit a delay.

For now, Illinois basketball fans will have to continue their wait to discover who will replace the fired Bruce Weber as the new Fighting Illini head coach. Weber was removed from the position after Illinois stumbled at the end of the season, dropping so far that an invitation to the NCAA Tournament was hardly even a possibility.
