I've been hearing rumblings for quite a while that there may be some people leaving the athletic department from the administrative end (nothing to do with football as far as an outsider like me knows). I saw Ron Warhurst, the long time track coach retired over the summer. I also just emailed Marty Bodnar, the long time ticket director and got back an auto-response saying "Marty Bodnar is no longer affiliated with the Athletic Department." I just exchanged emails with him about two weeks ago. Anybody heard anything?
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
