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 during the 2011 calendar year, according to the university's new federal tax return.

Big Tentacles: Brady Hoke vs. Brian Kelly, part deux. Plus Pat Fitzgerald on Kain Colter, bowl predictions, and more.
