Weber responds to Oklahoma reports

Illinois coach Bruce Weber responded to reports that Oklahoma had reached out to him to fill the Sooners’ vacated position by releasing a statement reaffirming that he is “commitmed” to the Illini program.

“I received a few interest calls regarding other positions, but nothing beyond that,” Weber said in the statement. “I remain committed to the University of Illinois. We held our first spring workouts yesterday. I enjoyed being in the gym with our returning players and look forward to welcoming a talented recruiting class to the mix. I am fortunate to have one of the elite jobs in all of college basketball and am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for our program. We will work tirelessly to ensure that Illinois is competing at a championship level both in the Big Ten and nationally.”
