Who’s the fastest coach on the Northwestern staff?

The Wildcats had some fun recently by having staff members (optionally) run the 400m dash.

Before the race, some coaches explained their keys to the race.

Recruiting intern Quentin Davie was confident. “Strategy: fast. Competition: No one.” He finished third.

In the end, football recruiting assistant Cory Nicol won, showing off that Big Ten speed. 

“Game plan, come out fast, you saw what happened,” he told Pat Fitzgerald. “Felt a monkey jump on my back around the corner, but was able to hold them off, somehow, someway.”
