Monday Quickies: Coaching Watch Edition

Late last week a report surfaced that Orlando Antigua was indeed leaving Illinois to return to Kentucky’s coaching staff under head coach John Calipari. While the university has yet to comment or confirm this decision, Big Blue Nation should expect to hear something in the coming days.

Along with Antigua, Chin Coleman could also be leaving Illinois and tag along to Kentucky. Five days ago, the Chicago Tribune reported the duo could fill the shoes of former Kentucky assistants Tony Barbee and Joel Justus.

The ability to land top-tier recruits and develop them has somewhat lacked consistency over the last few years in Lexington. Antigua and Coleman would provide an immediate spark in that department. Their decision to leave Illinois would be a blow to the program but an incredible boost for the Wildcats and Calipari.
