Rumors Fly around Evanston

Northwestern University has announced a press conference for 12:15 PM, Wildcat Time to announce the choice of a new head coach to replace Randy Walker. Some sources indicate that Pat Fitzgerald will be named at that time.

The press conference will be on NU live.

Pat Fitzgerald is an alumnus, and a coach who is similar in temperment to Randy Walker. There were hints all during the past week, not the least was his choice as the Assistant who eulogized Walker during yesterday's Memorial Service.

He's young, 31, but has most recently been recruiting coordinator, a situation not unlike Jeff Genyk's move to EMU 2 years ago.

There are also rumors of some coaching shifts to cover the Linebackers, but we'll have to wait for the press conference for more on that.
