Illinois redshirt senior QB Wes Lunt indicated that he likes the direction the new coaching staff has taken.
Lunt was predictably uneasy when Illinois abruptly fired HC Bill Cubit and his staff early in March. He likes what new HC Lovie Smith has done in a short amount of time, though, citing a "plan they executed really fast." Noted the 6-foot-5, 225-pound gunslinger, "It was an up-and-down roller-coaster ride, but now we're on an even, flat line and ready to go. It's been as smooth a transition as it can be in the short amount of time it's been." For the 2015 campaign, Lunt threw for 2,761 yards (56.1% completions) with a 14/6 TD/INT ratio. Illinois finished with a disappointing 5-7 record and a distressing 2-6 record in the Big Ten. All the more disturbing, the team actually jumped out to a 4-1 record before the wheels fell off.
