Greg Paulus could join Chris Collins' Northwestern staff

Jason Miller

With Chris Collins seemingly just an announcement away from being Northwestern's head coach, we can begin thinking about his staff, which will "likely" include Greg Paulus. Wait, WHAT?!?!?!

Remember Duke point guard Greg Paulus? Three year starter? 6'1, completely unbearable? Here, perhaps some video will jog your memory:

Perhaps you remember him from his one and only run in with Northwestern sports, from his one-year stint as quarterback for Syracuse, when he threw for a career-high 346 yards in a 37-34 victory - one of only four the Orange had when Paulus is at the helm.

Well, between all that, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you don't like Paulus very much. Well, sirs, I have some rather bad news for you:

Uhhh, well, yeah. So we were hoping still-as-of-yet-unnannounced-new-Northwestern-basketball coach Chris Collins would bring all the cool parts of Duke - you know, the winning lots of games despite recruiting from an academically elite pool, the packed-if-not-completely-modern stadium - and not so much the Greg Paulus aspects of Duke when he took over. But alas.

For what it's worth, Paulus' post-Syracuse career has been respectable. He was an assistant at Navy and has spent the past two years as a video coordinator under Thad Matta at Ohio State, reportedly aiding a lot in the development of Aaron Craft as a player - you can certainly see the similarities in their games.
