If there’s one thing that coaches don’t like, it’s phones ringing during their press conferences. Just two weeks ago, UCLA coach Jim Mora blew up and walked out of a presser when a camera operator received a call while he was answering questions.
Today at Northwestern, a phone rang during Pat Fitzgerald’s press conference, but he took it all in stride. Fitzgerald answered the call, politely told the caller that he’d have to call back, and left him with a “Go ‘Cats.”
Here’s the video — it’s pretty funny:
Northwestern hosts Ohio State this Saturday as ESPN’s College GameDay comes to town — Fitzgerald has more important things to worry about that accidental phone rings.
