Departing schools do not announce the leaving coach, the new schools generally make the announcement.
Yeah but if they delay too much we want to get it made official and the position posted as soon as possible. I’m sure they’ve communicated with OA on the timing.

OA has a few minor details to attend to prior to his departure. He's not leaving "ugly". Don't be surprised if this takes more than a "few" hours. Not as simple as turning the light switch off and puff it's dark. Who would have thought that we could be in this mess less than 3 weeks ago when all was well at the BTT championship celebration. Not me!! Go Illini

I think you might have blacked out a couple of weeks following the Loyola loss

To me, the fact that OA was not at the BTT half-time celebration was the first red flag that something was up.

While we want him to stay, if he isn't 110% in to getting the UI, and no one else no matter what, to a national championship then we wish him well and look for someone who does.

Any speculation on when Illinois posts the Asst Coach job?

People are making much too much about the posting of these positions. We can post whenever we want, search whenever we want, and we can extend offers whenever we want. We just can't officially hire someone.

I'm also a bit mystified when people share concern about the timing being bad. The 2021 recruiting season is all but done and I'm guessing that we'll be fine in the transfer recruiting process which I anticipate to extend well into August.

Pretty sure he was 100% about that while he worked here. I don’t think he’s leaving because he was ambivalent about Illinois’ success. Similarly, whomever we hire cares little about our success right now, but will be 100% about it once hired.

Timings only bad if a player or commit leaves bc of an assistant leaving
