NU’s Doc Sadler completed the hiring of his coaching staff by hiring Tracy Webster, who has roots to the Big Ten. Webster was an interim head coach at DePaul for half of last season. Before that he was an assistant at Purdue, Illinois, and Kentucky.
Before DePaul, Webster spent two years working for Billy Gillispie at Kentucky in 2007-08 and 2008-09. Webster may also be able to help Sadler with the move to the Big Ten.
He spent three years (2004-05 to 2006-07) as an assistant to Bruce Weber at Illinois, and before that spent the 2003-04 season with Gene Keady at Purdue, where he recruited in Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, and Indianapolis…all prime Big Ten real estate.
