For the first time in months, Illinois knows its future.
How long that future will last, though, remains to be seen.
In the hours before Illinois played its regular-season finale against Northwestern at Soldier Field, its interim head football coach simply became its head football coach.
Despite Michigan State’s big win last weekend, things aren’t quite determined yet in the Big Ten East.
Bill Cubit's future at Illinois is still yet to be determined, but one Wednesday-night report indicated the school could be leaning toward keeping Cubit on a bit more permanently.
A decision on Bill Cubit’s future at Illinois will come no later than 24 hours after Saturday’s regular-season finale against Northwestern.
