Northwestern Head Coach Randy Walker After Suffering Heart Attack

First Coach to Lead Northwestern to Three Bowl Games

Randy Walker passed away last night from an apparent heart attack at his suburban Chicago home. Walker was 52 years old. He is survived by his wife, Tammy, daughter Abbey and son Jamie.

Walker joined the Wildcats as their head coach in 1999 and compiled a 37-46 record. He led his lead to a shared 2000 Big Ten Title and an Alamo Bowl Berth, The Motor City Bowl in 2004-2005, and the Sun Bowl this past season. We was an excellent coach and was an even better human being. He will be missed.

My deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends, and players.
