Mike Bellamy promoted to Wide Receivers Coach

University of Illinois head football coach Tim Beckman announced Tuesday that Mike Bellamy has been elevated to wide receivers coach. A former star receiver for the Fighting Illini, Bellamy spent the 2012 season as assistant director of player personnel and relations on Beckman's staff.

"Mike Bellamy will be a terrific addition to the Fighting Illini football staff," Beckman said. "I've had a chance to observe Mike over the past year, and the job he did coordinating campus recruiting visits, maintaining communications with our former players and engaging with the current team was outstanding. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the wide receiver position, and as a former Fighting Illini player, an immense amount of pride and passion for the institution. I have no doubt Mike will be a great wide receivers coach and member of our coaching staff."
