Soap opera continues for former UI assistant Gillispie

Texas Tech head basketball coach Billy Gillispie, a former assistant coach at the University of Illinois, is out of the hospital, but not out of the woods.
He remains on the hot seat, and his coaching career is in doubt following complaints by players to the school’s athletic director about player abuse and violations of NCAA rules on the length of practice.
But friends are coming to his defense, one of whom is current Kansas coach and former UI head coach Bill Self.
Gillispie was a valued assistant to Self at the UI before he went on to head jobs at University of Texas-El Paso, Texas A&M, Kentucky and, now, Texas Tech.
