Pat Fitzgerald Speaks About Firing

Pat Fitzgerald is speaking out after being fired as Northwestern’s football coach.  Fitzgerald was let go after hazing allegations were made against the football program by former players.  He released a statement saying he was surprised that NU President Michael Schill revoked an agreement to receive a two-week suspension to resolve an investigation into the hazing accusations.  Fitzgerald added that his attorney Dan Webb and agent Bryan Harlan will “take the necessary steps to protect my rights in accordance with the law.”
