Tim Beckman to return as Illinois football coach
Illinois head coach Tim Beckman reacts to a call Saturday during the first half against Northwestern in Evanston.
CHAMPAIGN — University of Illinois Athletic Director Mike Thomas says Tim Beckman will return as head football coach next season.
Thomas told WDWS radio in Champaign on Tuesday that Beckman will be back.
Beckman is in his first year at Illinois but some fans have complained that he should be fired after a 2-10 season that finished with nine straight losses.
Beckman came to Illinois from Toledo. He replaced Ron Zook after Zook was fired. Zook's last team went 7-6 and finished with a bowl appearance.
