Pat Fitzgerald Stands With Northwestern Players: "I'm Incredibly Proud Of Our Young Men!"

Coach supports his players

Many have expressed concerns about what a possible union could mean for the future of college athletics, in response to the steps taken in that direction by Northwestern's football players today. The NCAA doesn't seem to be thrilled with today's proceedings, but Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald has tweeted in support of his players:

A lot of people in the sports world have come out against what Northwestern is doing, so it is refreshing to see someone in a position of power like Fitzgerald stand by his players when it would be easy to decline to comment on the issue.
