A.J. Ricker will be Illinois' offensive line coach
A.J. Ricker will be named offensive line coach at Illinois, sources confirm.
Ricker, who was Bill Cubit’s offensive line coach at Western Michigan, had been hired by Middle Tennessee State as tight ends and tackles coach in February.
He replaces Jim Bridge, who left earlier this week to join Darrell Hazell’s Purdue staff.
Ricker spent the past two seasons working under Cubit, who was fired after the Broncos finished 2012 with a 4-8 record. Tim Beckman hired Cubit as Illinois’ offensive coordinator in January.
A native of Klein, Texas, Ricker played center at Missouri from 2000-03. He holds the school record for consecutive starts with 47, and was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2003.
