Groce completes Illini staff with Parham

Posted: Updated:
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (Associated Press) -

A University of Illinois source has confirmed that basketball coach John Groce has completed his staff by hiring former Illinois State assistant Paris Parham.

The source confirmed Tuesday that Parham will take the spot vacated by Isaac Chew. Chew left for Marquette shortly after being hired by first-year Illini head coach Groce. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because Parham's hiring has not been announced.

Parham has coached in the Chicago Public League. Chicago is a key recruiting ground where Illinois has had only limited success in recent years.

Most recently Parham was an assistant under Tim Jankovich at Illinois State. Jankovich left this spring to join the staff at SMU.

Parham has been an assistant at Maryland-Eastern Shore and Minnesota State. He played at Minnesota State.
