REPORT: Michigan’s Billy Donlon headed to Northwestern

According to multiple reports, Michigan assistant coach Billy Donlon will join Chris Collins’ staff at Northwestern. Donlon joined the Michigan staff before last season after going 109-94 in six seasons as the head coach at Wright State.

Donlon and Collins both attended Glenbrook North (IL) HS, and Donlon spent a lot of time around the NU program last spring before being hired at Michigan. Also, Donlon’s father, Billy Sr. was a longtime assistant coach at NU, working for both Bill Foster and Ricky Birdsong.

An official announcement could come as early as this week.
