Illinois has already fired Ron Zook and will be coached by defensive coordinator Vic Koenning during the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl against UCLA. Still, offensive coordinator Paul Petrino was expected to stick around and run the offense for the bowl game, but that's no longer the case.
Petrino has left Illinois to join his brother Bobby Petrino's staff at Arkansas.
While it has not been specified what role Paul Petrino will fill with the Razorbacks as of yet, it's assumed he'll be serving as offensive coordinator. Arkansas' former offensive coordinator Garrick McGee recently accepted the head coaching job at UAB.
Illinois' quarterbacks coach Jeff Brohm will take over play-calling duties for the Illini.
