Illinois has hired Oklahoma State's Brad Underwood as its new coach.
Underwood spent three successful seasons at Stephen F. Austin before signing on to coach Oklahoma State for 2016-17. The Cowboys got off to a rough start to Big 12 play before rallying with a 9-1 stretch that landed them an NCAA Tournament bid.
 
Oklahoma State fell to seventh-seeded Michigan 92-91 on Friday, closing out Underwood's only season in Stillwater.
 
Underwood replaces John Groce, who was let go earlier this month.
 
The Fighting Illini went 95-75 in five seasons under Groce but made just one NCAA tournament appearance.
