Coach Pat Fitzgerald can’t wait to see fans back in the stadium

Northwestern Wildcats

Winning last year’s Big Ten West division was somewhat bittersweet for the Northwestern’s fan base. Sure it was their second such title in three years. But due to the pandemic, fans were not allowed to attend Big Ten games last year. That won’t be the case Friday night when Northwestern hosts big ten rival Michigan State to kickoff the 2021 season. Pat Fitzgerald, entering his 16th season as the head coach of the Wildcats, joined Lisa Dent (in for Bob Sirott), and Dave Eanet to talk about how excited he is for the return of football, who will start at quarterback, and whether he’s a country music fan or not. https://serve.castfire.com/audio/3871872/Coach_Pat_Fitzgerald_090221_2021-09-02-163912.64kmono.mp3 More Northwestern Football coverage

Coach Pat Fitzgerald is ‘humbled and honored’ after signing 10-year contract to remain at Northwestern

Northwestern Wildcats

Pat Fitzgerald sealed his legendary status in Evanston when he earned All-American honors as the star middle linebacker for a Northwestern team that played in the Rose Bowl for the first time in almost half a century. Fast-forward 25 years, and Fitzgerald is an icon on campus for brand new reasons. Having coached the team for a decade-and-a-half, Fitzgerald has brought his alma mater to brand new heights. Yesterday, he was rewarded with 10-year contract to keep him the head coach of the Wildcats through at least the 2030 season. He joined Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to discuss the new contract, and what it means to him and his family to stay home. https://serve.castfire.com/audio/3811259/Pat_Fitzgerald_012821_2021-01-28-144059.64kmono.mp3 More Northwestern Football coverage
