PAT FITZGERALD RUMORS

Pat Fitzgerald used Danny Kanell’s prediction as motivation

Northwestern pulled off a big bowl win on Wednesday by defeating Pitt 31-24 in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. After the victory, Wildcats head coach Pat Fitzgerald gave a sarcastic thanks to ESPN college football personality Danny Kanell for picking against his team.

Northwestern's Fitzgerald accepts criticism over field goal decision

Pat Fitzgerald believes the criticism of his decision to kick a field goal late against Ohio State is fair. Northwestern played Ohio State tough on Saturday but ended up losing 24-20. The game was especially tight in the second half when the teams were tied at 17. But after that, Ohio State broke ahead with a touchdown that gave the ball back to Northwestern with 9:43 left in the...

WATCH: Northwestern blasts Michigan State QB Ben Lewerke for a safety

Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald is going to love when the Wildcats go over film and he sees this safety from defensive end Joe Gaziano safety on repeat, over and over. Poor Michigan State quarterback Ben Lewerke never had a chance: Lewerke, a redshirt freshman, is going to learn very quickly that a rusher doesn’t have to be coming from the blind side to lay a wallop on...

Pat Fitzgerald brags about Northwestern signing Ohio player of the year

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald made sure the crown jewel of his 2016 recruiting class felt some love on National Signing Day. Fitzgerald no doubt values his home state of Illinois, but he also knows Ohio is an important recruiting state for most -- if not all -- of the Big Ten. So flipping Jeremy Larkin, who was previously committed to his hometown Cincinnati Bearcats, was a...

Tennessee dominates Northwestern in Outback Bowl

Last season, the Tennessee Volunteers won a second-tier January bowl game in the state of Florida against an opponent from the Big Ten West.

Video: Pat Fitzgerald heard cursing at one of his players

Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald is one of the most outspoken coaches in the Big Ten. Right now, he has a lot of reason to be angry as his Wildcats have lost two straight since opening the season 5-0. His team is leading the Nebraska Cornhuskers 30-28 late in the fourth quarter, but it has been a back-and-forth game for the Wildcats. Late in the third quarter, Fitzgerald was...

Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald Calls Nebraska “A Boring State”, Jokes About Blocking Husker Fans From Ryan Field

If Pat Fitzgerald has his eyes on any players out of Nebraska, he probably isn’t making any new friends there. After playing in a golf tournament with the other NU coaches and dozens of Wildcat supporters, Fitzgerald asked fans to fill Ryan Field, especially for the October 18 Homecoming game against Nebraska, a fanbase that is notorious for travelling well. He also threw a jab...
