Northwestern expected to name interim coach Braun as head coach this week

Multiple sources are reporting that staff have been told interim coach David Braun will be named the new head coach at Northwestern, possibly as early as Thursday.

If the Evanston City Council approves the stadium proposal (it was deferred a week on Monday), Saturday’s game would be the last game in the current stadium as well as the first game as the official head coach for Braun.

It would also mean Northwestern would play the 2024 and 2025 seasons in other stadiums, possibly Wrigley Field for some, possibly Soldier Field for others, and some who knows where!

The appointment is now official.
