Brad Underwood's deal with IL worth $18 million

A year later, history repeated itself. The Fighting Illini Radio Network page contains this information.

"I am excited to welcome Brad Underwood, his wife Susan, and their three children to the Fighting Illini family", Whitman said. However, during my time at Western Illinois, I always saw the Illinois coaching job as one of the truly best in the nation.

Underwood spent three successful seasons at Stephen F. Austin before signing to coach Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State fell to seventh-seeded MI 92-91 on Friday, closing out Underwood's only season in Stillwater.

Both Carpenter and Jones said the best part about Underwood is how he treats people and the both have stayed in contact with him over the years. OSU is a good job, too, but IL is a better job. "We're going to have a lot of fun, and I'm excited as heck about the opportunity to get to know the community of Stillwater, and the OSU family".

Will it be easier in the Big Ten Conference?

"We are saddened and disappointed in Brad's decision to leave Oklahoma State after one year", Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder said in a statement. "We are trying to digest this news".

"Coaching basketball at the University of IL is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity", Underwood said in a statement.

Trump dubbed the "Golfer-in-Chief"
Shortly before inauguration day, Napolitano had a one-on-one meeting with Trump about Supreme Court nomination possibilities. But that did not stop Trump from bringing them up again.

"There's very few programs that have the tradition, the culture, the success that this program has", Underwood said on the Mully & Hanley Show on Monday morning, hours before being introduced as the program's new head coach. Underwood says analytics play a large role in what his teams do offensively, which is unfamiliar modern talk for a program recently relegated to discussing the good ol' days. IL has hired Underwood for six years and will pay him approximately $3 million per year. "I want to help lead this program to that".

The first order of business for the new coach is to lock down a top-10 recruiting class former coach John Groce lined up.

It's plausible that he's just pointing up toward a higher power, but the timing of the gesture makes it pretty clear that it was supposed to be tied to the "Go Illini". Gottlieb told the O'Colly previous year he received no formal interview with Holder and his lack of coaching experience likely kept him from getting the job. He accepted the IL job on Saturday, the day after Oklahoma State was eliminated from the first round by MI. "I was there. There's no other way to look at it".

Underwood inherits a solid program. If you look at recruiting base and institution, location, exposure, budget.

Brad Underwood poses with IL athletic director Josh Whitman at his introductory news conference as the Illini's new basketball coach at the State Farm Center on March 20th.

"When he was at Kansas State about five years ago, they had a couple of recruits that they were tracking in Central Illinois, " Jones said.
