... per Jeff Goodman at CBS Sports, I believe among others. Not a surprise, but certainly worth passing along.
It's been no secret that Chris Collins was the frontrunner for the Northwestern job. However, now it's a done deal. Sources told CBSSports.com that Collins has agreed in principle to become the next coach of the Wildcats -- and he'll try to make history by taking the program to the NCAA tournament for the first time.

I really don't know what to think about this hire. He has been at duke forever and "learning" under Coach K, but just don't know how he will do as a head coach
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
He's got strong Chicago ties as Doug Collins' son. This is the move Northwestern wanted anyway.
Seemed like the right move for NU. I hope he makes them a respectable program. Will be an uphill climb, but definitely capable. The plus side for Collins is that he only needs to make the tournament once and he will be able to get a job at a lot of other places.
Northwestern wants him to be the next Fitzgerald -- local guy, strong ties to the program, enough pride to prefer building something good at Northwestern vs. taking a shot at great somewhere else. Curious to see where it goes.
