Pat Fitzgerald has become the highest paid employee of Northwestern University. According to a report by USA Today, the Wildcats' head football coach was credited with a compensation package worth at least $2.2 million dollars in 2011. This marks the first time since 2005 that a Northwestern coach has been the private university's highest paid employee.
"Pat Fitzgerald was credited with more than $2.2 million in compensation

USA Today based its report on Northwestern University's most recent federal tax return.
