In the span of six months the University of Illinois has now fired two head football coaches. Illinois Athletic Director Josh Whitman announced today that they have terminated Bill Cubit as head coach. In his lone season as head coach Cubit led Illinois to a 5-7 overall record and 2-6 mark in the Big Ten.
“I want to thank Bill,” says Whitman. “As you can imagine this has been a very difficult situation to step into. I think has done an admiral job.”
