Groce to take over at Akron

Former Illinois basketball head coach John Groce will be the new head coach of the Akron Zips, according to a report Tuesday afternoon from ESPN basketball insider Jeff Goodman.

On March 11, Groce was relieved of his duties as Illinois head coach after posting a 95-75 record during his five seasons in Champaign. Groce’s teams went 39-53 in conference play, which was one major reason for his departure.
