Northwestern football coach Pat Fitzgerald signed a 10-year contract extension that will keep him in Evanston until 2020, the university announced Tuesday.
Although no specifics were released, an industry source estimates that Fitzgerald’s salary will increase significantly with the extension. The source also said that Fitzgerald’s new contract could rank him in the middle of Big Ten football coaches. Ohio State’s Jim Tressel and Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz are at the top of the scale, making close to $4 million a year.
