Pedon joins Groce's staff

CHAMPAIGN — Ryan Pedon, a 13-year veteran of the coaching profession who served as a Toledo men’s basketball assistant the last three seasons, has joined Illinois coach John Groce’s staff as special assistant to the head coach.

“I’ve known Ryan for more than a decade and have a tremendous amount of respect for his work at Miami, Kent State and Toledo,” Groce said Thursday. “He has extensive background in all areas of coaching, recruiting, scouting, video analysis and organization, summer camps and administrative duties that make him a perfect match for the duties of this job. Ryan will be a great fit with our staff as we all work toward our shared vision for this program.”
