AD Issue Over With

The incident that took place a week ago Friday regarding the Athletic Director Ron Guenther should come to a close after a report from the university.

The University of Illinois will not discipline Athletic Director Ron Guenther for yelling at men's basketball coach Bruce Weber and Illini players during the team's NCAA tournament loss last Friday, officials said.

Guenther yelled substitution advice to Weber who was just a few feet away and at one point called Illini forward Warren Cater and Idiot, according to a CBS columnist, who sat two seats from Guenther on press row during the 54-52 loss to Virginia Tech.

Richard Herman, chancellor at the Urbana-Champaign campus, said Wednesday that Guenther in his 15th year as AD at Illinois would not be disciplined. He said Guenther had apologized to Weber and Carter.
