The coaching carousel continues.
Sources tell me Illinois defensive line coach Keith Gilmore will be named defensive line coach at North Carolina. bit.ly/xpkQEX— Pete Roussel (@coachingsearch) January 26, 2013
The coaching turnover just doesn't stop. As you see from the tweet about, defensive line coach Keith Gilmore is reportedly leaving Illinois to take the same job at North Carolina. Which is a blow to this program, as Gilmore has been coaching our defensive line since 2009.
This is a blow, no doubt. Hopefully Tim Beckman will be able to find a replacement for Gilmore with as much experience as he found in both Bill Cubit and Jim Bridge. Still, I can't believe Beckman saw this coming. I know I didn't.
