Chris Collins Top Canidate For Northwestern Job

There are several reports that Chris Collins, associate head coach at Duke, is the leading candidate for head coaching job at Northwestern. Collins is an obvious candidate. I said so last year. He grew up in Illinois. Between playing and coaching, he’s spent eighteen years at Duke, a similar academic institution to Northwestern. The problem is, he might not want the job. He’d likely take a cut in pay. Like I said last week, Northwestern hasn’t committed very much to basketball. This program could put a stain on his resume that would be very hard to remove. Athletic director Jim Phillips will have to do a good selling job if he wants Chris Collins to coach at Northwestern.
