Northwestern Suspends Football Coach Pat Fitzgerald for Two Weeks After Hazing Allegations

From a story on by Chris Vannini and Scott Dochterman headlined “Northwestern suspends coach Pat Fitzgerald for 2 weeks after investigation into hazing allegations”:

Northwestern is suspending coach Pat Fitzgerald for two weeks without pay after an investigation found hazing allegations within the football program to be credible.

“While the investigation did not uncover evidence pointing to specific misconduct by any individual football player or coach, participation in or knowledge of the hazing activities was widespread across football players,” Northwestern said.

Additionally, investigators did not find “sufficient evidence” that the coaching staff knew about the hazing. However, investigators discovered there had been significant opportunities to discover and report the hazing.
