Northwestern defensive coordinator David Braun has been tabbed as the school’s interim head coach for the 2023 season. Braun will serve as the interim coach in the aftermath of the firing of coach Pat Fitzgerald amid allegations of hazing in the Northwestern program.  Northwestern hired Braun to be the school’s defensive coordinator in January, which means he arrived after the hazing investigation was already initiated. Braun came from North Dakota State, where he won FCS Coordinator of the Year in 2021.
