According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers are interested in looking at Northwestern Wildcats head coach Pat Fitzgerald for their vacant head coaching position. Interim Head Coach Joe Philbin will serve as the team’s head coach for the final time this season on Sunday.

Philbin is expected to interview for the position. The Packers are also expected to interview Fitzgerald, as well.

Packers CEO Mark Murphy was previously the Wildcats Athletic Director when Fitzgerald at Northwestern. Since becoming the Wildcats Head Coach, he has turned down opportunities to interview for NFL head coaching positions over the years.

The 44-year-old Orland Park, Illinois native is making $3.3 million as the Wildcats head coach. Fitzgerald would get an increased raise by becoming an NFL head coach.

Fitzgerald has been the Wildcats head coach since the 2006 season. He has gone 95-70 in 13 seasons.

This season, Northwestern went 8-5 in Fitzgerald’s leadership. They play in the upcoming San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl against the UTah Utes on December 31st, 2018 at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego, California.

He has two 10-win seasons as the Wildcats head coach. First, he guided the team to a 10-3 record in 2012.

He also guided the team to a 10-3 record in 2017;

Green Bay has already reportedly interviewed former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell. They have also reportedly interviewed former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano.

The Packers position is going to be at the top of the jobs that will be available for coaches. That’s because they have living legend Aaron Rodgers, who will be a Hall of Famer when his career is over.
