Wasn't yesterday (last 2 weeks actually) the expected outcome? I don't think this was a spur of the moment decision.I wonder if Josh already has someone ready to go? Probably not. What happened at Northwestern probably led to a spur of the moment decision to dump Lovie immediately and start the coaching search.
I would be disappointed by any of those three. Huepel and Candle have not shown enough outside of following other successful coaches. And Lewis has not had enough time to show he can make it happen. No more retreads, no more flash in the pan hires. Time to get someone with a proven track record of building up a program.1. Josh Huepel
2. Jason Candle
3. Sean Lewis
My wish list wouldn’t align with the values I’d the admin at Illinois. It sounds like JW already has his guy and I know he contacted 5-6 coaches before making this decision. You guys should have an answer soon(I don’t know exactly who the choice is yet either)Illini0440- you graciously declined to go in depth into your wish list of coaches while Lovie was still employed. I am very curious about your wish list and the breakdown of any truly available/likely to take our phone call candidates
