Northwestern coaches Fitzgerald, Collins get long-term deals

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Northwestern locked up its homegrown football and basketball coaches for the long term.

Football coach Pat Fitzgerald signed a new contract that runs through the 2026 season. Basketball coach Chris Collins' contract was extended through the 2024-25 season. Both are Chicago-area natives.

"At Northwestern we place a premium on `institutional fit', and we have assuredly found leaders for our football and men's basketball programs that fit this university and our mission to deliver a world-class experience to our student-athletes," athletic director Jim Phillips said in a statement Tuesday.
