Matt Bollant & Dani Teel
Dani and her father Dan went down to meet the three new Illini coaches in Peoria last night. Dan was a manager for Big 10 Championship team of 1984. He is a huge Illini fan, and Dani is a huge Illini fan.
They are right in thinking the Illini have gotten a good coach. Matt Bollant has coached 10 years as a head college coach. At Bryan, in the NAIA, his teams went 134-36 for a .788 winning record. He then stepped it up even more at University of Wisconsin- Green Bay where in five years his teams went 148-19 for a .886 winning record. His teams have never won fewer than 25 games in a season- pretty impressive.
Personally, I am hoping Dani will become a manager for either the women's or men's basketball teams at Illinois. Her enthusiasm and willingness to work hard would make her a natural.
