FITZ FIRES McCALL

Northwestern announced that offensive coordinator Mick McCall will not return to coach the Wildcats, making the announcement less than a day after NU's football season came to an end. The 'Cats ranked near the bottom of the FBS in offense, triggering a program collapse just one season after winning the Big Ten West title.

According to Teddy Greenstein in the Chicago Tribune's coverage, potential replacements for McCall include Notre Dame assistant coach Tom Rees and former Wisconsin assistant Matt Canada. Greenstein notes about McCall's firing, "more staff changes could be coming."
