Following the departure of former assistant coaches Chin Coleman and Orlando Antigua to Kentucky, the Illini basketball program needed to add a new assistant. Coleman and Antigua were integral recruiters for compiling the 2020-21 Big Ten Champion Illinois team, so there will be some large shoes to fill.

Illinois made a stride in that department on Thursday, however, as Jeff Goodman of Stadium reports Brad Underwood is adding Chester Frazier from Virginia Tech as a replacement.

Frazier played for Illinois basketball under Bruce Weber from 2005-2009. During that time, he served as a team captain twice and helped the Illini reach the NCAA tournament three times. After college, he played in Germany from 2009-2012.

Frazier entered the coaching realm as a graduate assistant at Illinois before reuniting with Weber at Kansas State, where he spent seven seasons as an assistant. He then moved onto Virginia Tech, where he has served as an assistant since 2019.
