BREAKING: Chris Collins to remain Northwestern men’s basketball’s head coach after meeting with AD Derrick Gragg

After yet another disappointing season at the helm of the Northwestern’s men’s basketball, it appears that Chris Collins will get at least one more shot to turn things around.

In a Monday afternoon statement, NU Director of Athletics and Recreation Dr. Derrick Gragg, who began his term in Evanston less than a year ago, announced that, after a conversation with Collins, he has tasked him “with making necessary changes to build towards success in the 2022-23 campaign,” suggesting that Collins will remain the Wildcats’ head coach for the time being. The announcement comes after enhanced scrutiny of Collins and the NU program following the ‘Cats’ fifth-consecutive losing season.
