Making Northwestern a Winner

Linked below is a really good article profiling Northwestern head coach Chris Collins who led the Wildcats to their first-ever NCAA Tournament in 2017. The article highlights how Collins has done nothing but double down on his hard-charging ways rather than becoming complacent after 2017’s historic run. The article also brings you inside Bryant McIntosh’s living room for Collins’ recruiting pitch to the then-high school senior as well as touching on Collins’ struggle with the pressure of being the son of an NBA player.

Explains Collins: “I thought coaching was all about strategy—putting guys in, taking them out, all that stuff. But I realized, being around Coach K, that the most important thing is getting the group of guys that you lead to believe in you and want to fight for you. In order to do that, they first of all have to know that you love them, that you care about them, that you have their best interest at heart.”
