Chris Collins and Northwestern have agreed to a multi-year contract extension, according to a report from Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune. A program spokesperson later confirmed the extension to Inside NU.

According to Greenstein, the extension was agreed to after Collins' end-of-season meeting with athletic director Jim Phillips.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Collins told Greenstein he would be in Evanston for the "foreseeable future."

Collins also told Greenstein the following:

"It's not ‘coach Cal' money, but it's in the ballpark of what guys in our league are making. I want to be at Northwestern and love what we're doing. I just wanted to be treated fairly."

Collins' initial contract at Northwestern was reported as a seven-year, $10 million dollar deal, which would've had him earning a little over $1.4 million per year through the 2019-20 season. The extension will undoubtedly pay him more.
