(WCCU/WICS/WRSP) - Tuesday night, University of Illinois coaches Bret Bielema, Brad Underwood, and Dan Hartleb sent out tweets with the same message. Supporting the IHSA and offering their assistance as the organization continues to find a way for sports to return at the high school level.

The IHSA board of directors is set to meet on Wednesday, following last weeks meeting with representatives from the Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinois Deputy Governor Jesse Ruiz.

All sports at the high school level are currently on hold across the state of Illinois. Low risk sports may not begin until the state returns to Phase 4 in the All Sports Policy.
