Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald just got a lot bigger — as in, 44-feet-tall bigger.

This week, workers at Ryan Field should put the finishing touches on a mural of Fitzgerald that will hang from the stadium’s south tower facing the corner of Ashland and Central streets in Evanston.

The mural is part of some beautification work being done on Ryan Field before the Wildcats’ home opener Sept. 10 against Eastern Illinois.
