NORTHWESTERN HIRES 31 YEAR OLD HEAD COACH

New, 10 comments

Northwestern's linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator Pat Fitzgerald--all of 31 years old--will be the new head coach in Evanston. Fitzgerald brings with him a most significant connection to Northwestern's grandest memory: he was a linebacker on the 1995 Rose Bowl team.

Good luck to Fitzgerald. He's got a supremely difficult crash course in coaching to attend this fall.
