And now, some bittersweet news. According to Evan Daniels, former UK assistant and South Florida head coach Orlando Antigua will join Brad Underwood’s new staff at Illinois. After Antigua was fired by South Florida a few months ago, there were rumblings he could come back to Kentucky to rejoin John Calipari’s staff, but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Regardless, best of luck to Coach O, who is a heck of a hire for Brad Underwood. Not only is Coach O one of the best recruiters in the nation, he’s one of the best people too.
