After all the talk of NFL teams heavily on the trail of Pat Fitzgerald, he has signed a 10 year extension with Northwestern. Like many Buckeye fans, I have nothing but respect for PF and how he has run the program at Northwestern. While the contract details have not been disclosed, I hope this ensures he is in the B1G for a long time.
"We have one of the best coaches in college football and, more importantly, a leader uncommonly suited to this University," Northwestern athletic director Jim Phillips said in a statement. "Over the course of his tenure, Coach Fitzgerald has built a culture of unwavering belief in excellence both on and off the field, and led our Wildcats to unprecedented sustained success. They boast incredible achievement in the classroom, in the community and in competition, and will for years to come."
Congrats to Pat Fitzgerald and the Northwestern football program.
