AmpliVox Congratulates Hometown Legendary Coach Pat Fitzgerald




On Wednesday January 27th, Chicago’s hometown collegiate football coach Pat Fitzgerald agreed to a long-term contract extension with the Northwestern Wildcats through the 2030 season.

AmpliVox proudly salutes Coach Fitzgerald.

As a long-time supporter of the North Suburban YMCA, AmpliVox helped to recognize Fitzgerald and and his wife Stacy Fitzgerald when they were presented with the YMCA's Thiel Award for Social Responsibility in 2017. The award recognized their role leading the North Shore Griffins Youth Football League. Fitzgerald has a long career of accomplishments.


A former two-time All-American as a Northwestern University football player in the 1990s, Fitzgerald won both the Chuck Bednarik Award and Nagurski trophy, twice, as the best defensive player in college football.

Individual accolades were only half of Fitzgerald's impact during his time at Northwestern; leading the Wildcats to a pair of Big Ten Championships, and their only Rose Bowl appearance in school history in 1997.

Fitzgerald's collegiate impact at Northwestern awarded him a Big Ten Medal of Honor and an induction into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008.

Since his hiring as the program’s head football coach in July of 2006, Fitzgerald has led Northwestern to ten bowl games and five bowl victories in fourteen seasons.

Bronko Nagurski Trophy

Big Ten Medal of Honor

College Football Hall of Fame
Fourteen of Northwestern's sixteen all-time bowl appearances have come with Fitzgerald as a player or coach.

During the 2020 season opener, at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois, Coach Fitzgerald became the programs winningest coach with 106 victories.

To top of his already impressive player and coaching resumes, Fitzgerald has been recognized twice as the most valuable coach in college football. Once in 2020, as the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year as well as in 2018, as the Big Ten Coach of the Year.





Top 3 Bowl wins in Fitzgerald career

2013 Gator Bowl Mississippi State vs Northwestern



Coach Fitzgerald 's most memorable winning moments have come during his team’s bowl appearances. After a 9–3 regular season record the Wildcats were invited to the 2013 Gator Bowl where they beat Mississippi State Bulldogs 34–20, ending a 63-year bowl win drought. The school’s first postseason victory since 1949.


2017 NCAA Football Music City Bowl Kentucky v Northwestern



In 2017, Fitzgerald’s squad finished the season on an eight-game winning streak, capped by a win in the Music City Bowl over an SEC opponent, the Kentucky Wildcats. With a 10–3 season record, Northwestern finished 17th in both the AP and Coaches' Polls. Their second highest ranking in program history!


NCAAF Vrbo Citrus Bowl - Auburn Tigers vs Northwestern Wildcats



Most recently, Fitzgerald became Northwestern’s winningest coach after finishing the 2021 campaign with his 106th victory in the Citrus Bowl. Their 35-19 victory over another SEC opponent, the Auburn Tigers, was ultimately the win that prompted his long term contract.



In 2017, AmpliVox had the opportunity of a lifetime to be in the presence of greatness.

Northwestern’s Head Football Coach Pat Fitzgerald and his wife Stacy Fitzgerald president of the North Shore Griffins Youth Football League, were awarded the YMCA's Thiel Award for Social Responsibility in AmpliVox’s own backyard, at the North Suburban YMCA in Northbrook, IL.

This award has honored those who have gone above and beyond to support the YMCA’s mission, which is to provide the widest range of quality programs for all ages, accessible to everyone in the community.

It was during this event players of the NU Football Team assisted their coach by disguising themselves in superhero attire, taking photos with guests and helping with auctions and games.

AmpliVox is proud to be a longtime supporter of the North Suburban YMCA, including CEO Don Roth’s past tenure on the Y’s Board of Directors.



At the 2017 Strong Kids Dinner, AmpliVox provided an SW915 Digital Audio Travel Partner and an SW800 Titan Wireless Portable PA system with satellite speakers, delivering outstanding sound to a record breaking crowd of over 475 in the large Pinstripes venue.

In addition, AmpliVox supplied a customized Pinnacle Multimedia Lectern featuring Northwestern’s school colors and logo.

AmpliVox Sound Systems is ecstatic for the continuance of Coach Fitzgerald’s tenure with the Northwestern Wildcats Football program! We anticipate him to keep bringing the winning culture home to Chicago!

Congratulations Coach Pat Fitzgerald on your extension from the Amplivox family!

Black History Month: Honoring the Legacy of Harriet Tubman


In celebration of Black History Month we pay special tribute to antislavery crusader and Civil War veteran Harriet Tubman.

Tubman was a singular figure of the abolition movement, an enslaved woman who escaped captivity in Maryland and made at least 19 trips back to free more slaves.

She is estimated to have helped several hundred enslaved people find freedom in Canada via the Underground Railroad and is said to have "never lost a passenger."

During the Civil War, she freed 700 more when she led Union forces on a raid on Combahee Ferry in South Carolina.

In her later life, though she had little money of her own, Tubman worked to house and feed the poor and became an important figure in the fight for women's suffrage.

Harriet Tubman became the first African American woman to appear on a U.S. postage stamp issued on February 1, 1978, the first in the Post Office's Black Heritage Series.

In January 2021 President Biden's administration announced they were taking steps to move forward with the $20 dollar bill redesign, following years of calls from activists to have Tubman's face replace that of President Andrew Jackson.




Harriet Tubman was a true American patriot, for whom liberty and freedom were not just concepts. She lived those principles and shared that freedom with hundreds of others.

Her legacy is an essential part of the story of America’s evolution from a slave-holding nation into one that recognizes the human rights of African Americans.
