Is the Chief Gone? No One Told Us.

Here is Tupper's blog today. Note the end:

I hope Eastern has a good fan contingent there, and I expect it will. And just a reminder, but this begins Chief Illiniwek’s Farewell Tour through football. Plans are that the Chief will do his normal halftime dance at all seven home football games, then do the same at halftime of home basketball games. He already has appeared at home volleyball.

Then that’s it. The Board of Trustees is working on a plan for the Chief’s retirement and those details will be announced at some time this school year.

So when did this happen? We did a google search on it and found nothing. When did the Board of Trustees decide this is it for the Chief?
