Northwestern has suspended coach Pat Fitzgerald for two weeks without pay following an investigation into alleged hazing within the football program. The school says an investigation led by law firm ArentFox did not find “sufficient” evidence that the coaching staff knew about ongoing hazing. But the report says there were “significant opportunities” to find out about it and report the conduct. Fitzgerald started serving his suspension on Friday. He says in a statement he was “very disappointed” when he heard about the hazing allegations. Investigators say the hazing often happened in the team’s locker room.
