Ron Zook's job search could end Monday -- when Illinois is expected to offer him its head football coaching job -- according to The Gainesville (Fla.) Sun.
Zook, who was recently fired by Florida, reportedly moved to the top of the Illini's wish list after interviewing earlier this week with university officials in Chicago.
Ole Miss also has approached Zook, but the Rebels are believed to prefer Louisville's Bobby Petrino. Zook is still expected to interview with Mississippi on Monday.
Zook still has not decided whether to coach the Gators in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, according to the Sun, though there has been strong speculation that he won't be on the Florida sidelines for the Dec. 31 game.
