Illinois drops Beatty
Illinois co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Chris Beatty isn't being retained by the school, Tim Beckman announced today.
Beckman begins a national search for an offensive coordinator. The position was shared in 2012 by Beatty and Billy Gonzales. No announcement has been made about the status of Gonzales.
“Chris Beatty is an outstanding person and a good coach,” Beckman said. “His family will always be a part our Illini football family. I wish him the best as he moves forward with his career.”
Illinois ranked last in the Big Ten in scoring and total offense.
