SHARE Pat Fitzgerald has conversation with Kain Colter about APU

During Tuesday’s Big Ten conference call, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said he had a discussion with Kain Colter regarding his involvement with the All Players United movement.

The movement advocates on a number of issues related to college football, most notably the payment of collegiate athletics and the evaluation of concussions. During Saturday’s win over Maine, Colter displayed APU on each of his wristbands.

“Kain and I had a discussion and those things will be what he and I will keep between the two of us,” Fitzgerald said. “But from the standpoint of having an opportunity to have a teachable moment, I thought it was a great one for not only him but also for our ball club. What we try to do is keep things in a team context and when you try to do some things like that I think it’s a teachable and coachable moment.”
