April 15, 2010
Champaign, Ill. - Illinois head coach Bruce Weber announced today that Stan Simpson (Chicago, Ill.) has left the Illini basketball team. Weber and Simpson met recently and mutually agreed that transferring is in the redshirt freshman's best interest. Simpson plans to complete the spring semester before enrolling at another institution.
"Stan faced a number of challenges during his time here," Weber said. "He is looking for more playing time and a fresh start, and we will monitor his academic progress this spring while assisting him in the transfer process."
