No further details, comments on the head coach searchIllinois State will continue to honor the terms of Muller’s contract while a comprehensive nationwide search is underway. Currently, there is no timeline as to when the hire will occur. Illinois State officials had no comment on the head coach search Sunday night. However, sources state that comments will be made once the successor is announced. Brennan states that the decision to start the search process was imperative, given the 30-day notice from Muller. “This will allow us to find the best candidate,” Brennan said. “[This will also] provide them with the time necessary to recruit prior to the upcoming signing period in April.”
