Illinois fires Jolette Law after 5 seasons

Illinois women's basketball coach Jolette Law has been fired after five seasons, the school announced on Friday.

The move was Illinois athletic director Mike Thomas' second major coaching change in his first year. He previously fired football coach Ron Zook in November. Thomas could also have a difficult decision ahead over whether to retain men's basketball coach Bruce Weber.

Law went 69-93 overall and 27-59 in the Big Ten and reached the WNIT twice in five years. Illinois never finished higher than eighth in the Big Ten under Law.
