Illinois head coach Kevin Hambly has announced the hiring of Dan Conners as an assistant coach. Conners comes to Illinois after serving on the staff of a pair of elite programs in Nebraska and UCLA.
"We're really excited about adding Dan to the program," Hambly said. "He's coached at a high level for some great coaches the last several years and understands what it takes to win at that level. More importantly, I feel like he fits us culturally."
