Wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales has left LSU to become the offensive coordinator at Illinois.
LSU head coach Les Miles confirmed Gonzales’ departure on Wednesday but only acknowledged he’s leaving for “a school in the Big Ten.” Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com reported Illinois was expected to introduce Gonzales soon.
“This is a great promotoion for Billy,” Miles said. “Billy will do a great job as an offensive coordinator. This is a tremendous opportunity for him and his family. We wish Billy, his wife Julie and their two children nothing but the best.”
Miles will now look for the best possible replacement for Gonzales.
“I’m not going to be in a hurry (to fill this position),” Miles said. “We are going to hire a great coach with an outstanding background.”
