Right. Those players were brought in by Tiley. Dancer hasn't done much at all in recruiting. He's also not a very good match coach. That's why they're on a downward spiral.
And the present AD had nothing to do with hiring Craig Tiley. The coach before him left town so he put Tiley on an "interim" basis while he looked for a new coach. Craig turned out to be better than he thought so he was lucky. We can't count on the present AD to do anything about the situation. You have to wonder how far Illinois tennis is going to go down.
