The University of Illinois has fired its head football coach as of this morning. Tim Beckman, the head coach behind this team is now unemployed and looking for work. It’s doubtful this former CFL Player & coach will be able to find any work though as it’s suspected he’s lost his job due to the fact that he mishandles player injuries. The only issue with firing Mr. Beckman is that the season started only days ago, finding a new head coach is urgent.
The University of Illinois more than likely already has a new head coach lined up and their probably waiting until the next game until they announce the new head coach. There are only eight potential replacements which could take over Mr. Beckman’s position but none the less what this shows is that the game of football is changing. Respect for the players, their concerns and injuries are becoming more common as ultimately there the ones who fill the seats in the stands and not the coach. This is why so many CFL and NFL football teams have begun to hire more honorable coaches.
Tim Beckman hasn’t been able to be reached for comment as of right now. This is a man known for losing his temper so it could be a few days before he releases a statement regarding the future of his career. Though if sports analysts are correct then this man’s days of coaching incredible football players are officially over. It now seems that Beckman has finally been Beckman’d.
