Northwestern University and the NCAA might not be on board with a group of Wildcats, led by quarterback Kain Colter, attempting to form a player’s union, but coach Pat Fitzgerald is sticking by his team.
Fitzgerald sent out a tweet Tuesday afternoon stating how proud he was of his players.
Kain and our student-athletes have followed their beliefs with great passion and courage. I'm incredibly proud of our young men! GO CATS!

Of course, Northwestern University and the NCAA are going to attempt to quash this movement as the request to form a union sits in front of the National Labor Relations Board, but it’s got to feel good as a player to know you’re coach is behind you even while his employer isn’t.
