Northwestern has agreed to a new contract with football coach Pat Fitzgerald that runs through the 2026 season, according to two people with direct knowledge of the deal.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity Monday night because Northwestern planned to make a formal announcement on Tuesday. In a news release, the school said a news conference was scheduled with Fitzgerald, athletic director Jim Phillips and basketball coach Chris Collins at the Under Armour Brand House in Chicago on Tuesday. One of the people who spoke to the AP says Collins is also receiving a new contract.
ESPN was first to report Fitzgerald's deal.
