Illini add Bucs assistant Phair as co-defensive coordinator

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois has hired former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears assistant coach Mike Phair to be a co-defensive coordinator.

Phair, a coach with a long NFL resume but little college experience, will join current coordinator Tim Banks and try to improve one of the Big Ten's least effective defenses. Phair will coach the defensive line.

Illini coach Tim Beckman on Friday stressed Phair's connections to former Bears coaches.
