Walters to Illinois?
Some buzz about him.

re: Walters to Illinois?

As DC with an Assistant Head Coach title and pay raise?

At this point I can't see where going to Illinois is anything but a career death wish.

If he goes, I would guess he got some encouragement.

Tomorrow’s headline “Walters signed to extension at Mizzou with salary increase and and $13MM buyout”

From Football Scoop, re: DC at Illinois:

"Bielema’s been conducting interviews with Missouri’s Ryan Walters, Oklahoma State’s Jim Knowles and Wofford’s Josh Conklin."

Decision likely tomorrow.

I highly doubt it. If so then I would guess he may have been asked to look for a landing spot. I just can’t see this. I would think it’s highly likely he is the DC at Mizzou next year

re: Walters to Illinois?
How can he be coming back when he's interviewing for a lesser job? I get trying for the CU HC gig but Illinois DC? Doesn't this seem like Drink being a good guy by not outright firing him?

1. I don’t know that he’s interviewed. Football Scoop is not always totally reliable.

2. If he was fired, he’d be fired.

Who would be better that would come to Mizzou as DC?

I think the logic here is that Drinkwitz told him to start looking so that they don't have to fire him. This way he gets a pay raise and a clean slate to start somewhere else. The speculation would then move to who Eli has tapped for DC.

That's a good bet. And, if true, I think Drink has a replacement all but signed and announced.

Ok, but what happens if Walters doesn’t get this job?

If Walters is gone

I'm thinking his departure gets spun as mutually agreeable.

I think Drink already has his next DC lined up

re: Walters to Illinois?
For the Illinois job? He's arguably the best candidate from the list..

Missouri’s Ryan Walters
Oklahoma State’s Jim Knowles
Wofford’s Josh Conklin
