|Illini coach Bruce Weber will have a new athletic director to impress next season.|
“I feel very confident that Bruce can get this thing figured out,” Guenther said on Feb. 17. “He’s a wonderful coach and a great human being. He will do the right thing at the end of the year.”Judging by the comments Weber made to media yesterday, the admiration ran both ways:
"He was so good to us," Weber said. "When you needed help he was there. He was a coach before. He knew when to come in, when not to, when not to bug you. Sometimes just let you talk and vent. He understood."
