Webster leaves...time to make a big-time hire

I asked for an assistant shake-up on the Illini hoops staff. We have one.

Tracy Webster is joining Billy Clyde at Kentucky. Great get for UK. Webster has awesome ties to Chicago, is close with Darius Miller (who I would assume is now going to UK) and was the lead recruiter for Jereme Richmond .

Now it's time for Weber to go out and get a big-time recruiter. I would suggest taking into account relationship to the Chicago Public League coaches.

I will go as far as to say this decision could make or break Weber's tenure at Illinois. He makes a slam dunk hire, we are back in business. He whiffs and the program will not survive. Not with Self, Gillispie and Sampson choking off our talent pool.
