Recall that this turkey had posited in my season predictions that this would be Tim Beckman’s final year as head football coach at Illinois: “We all hope this will be Asshole Tim Beckman’s (ATB) last year…”.
We didn’t have to put up with him for another year. The University of Illinois fired Tim Beckman today.
My prayers have been prematurely answered. Thank you to the fine folks at University of Illinois and the football gods for this pre-Labor Day gift.
Beckman was accused by the administration of suppressing injury reports, endangering the welfare of student-athletes.
We all know what kind of dirty tricks this dickhead is capable of, man. I don’t think there will be any tears anywhere outside the Beckman household tonight. And, oh, by the way, it was so bad that Illinois isn’t going to pay Beckman the 3.1 million they might have owed him if he had just done a lousy job. But noooooooo, he had to show his true colors and now he’ll get what he deserves: bupkis.
