Greg Colby joins football staff

Greg Colby
Illinois football coach Tim Beckman announced today the hiring of Greg Colby as defensive line coach following a five-year stint as head coach at Millersville University, an NCAA Division II institution located in Millersville, Pa.

"Greg Colby brings a wealth of coaching experience and Fighting Illini historical football knowledge to our staff," Beckman said. "Greg grew up in Danville, was a great student-athlete at Illinois, was on the coaching staff here for eight years, and has worked at several different successful programs since. He has built some outstanding relationships with his extensive recruiting experience in the Chicagoland area. Greg understands what it means to be a Fighting Illini football player and what it takes to be successful here. I have no doubt our players will respond very positively to him as a coach and as a person."
