With the news on Wednesday that offensive coordinator Bill Cubit will be back with the team next season, Illini fans should be thrilled. That’s a win.
If there was one bright spot for the 2013 Illinois football team, it was the offense under the direction of offensive coordinator Bill Cubit.
The only hope for Illinois to continue progress (or start it) is by firing embattled defensive coordinator Tim Banks and hoping that Thomas can hire a talented assistant to replacement him.
The Illini don’t have a Red Grange this season, but with Bill Cubit’s offense they may have more than a Galloping Ghost of a chance vs. the Huskers.
If Tim Beckman’s coaching career at Illinois really does go from knocking on death’s door to cracking – or even kicking – it open for his return in 2014, he’ll probably be able to thank heavens for one person.
According to a report, Illinois has hired former Western Michigan head coach Bill Cubit to be the team’s offensive coordinator.
