Chris Collins Biography
Chris Collins was born April 20, 1974 and is an American basketball player and coach from Northbrook, Illinois. He is currently the head coach at Northwestern University. Collins previously served as associate head coach of the Duke University men's basketball team and is the son of National Basketball Association (NBA) coach Doug Collins.
Collins awards in high school included Illinois Mr. Basketball, McDonald's All American, and McDonald's All American 3 point champion. After graduating from Glenbrook North High School he went on to play at Duke University. Collins received many honors for his play at Duke and was named to the All-ACC rookie team as a freshman in 1993. During his senior year, he was team captain, named Second Team All-ACC and also was awarded the Swett-Baylin Memorial Trophy, which is a trophy for Duke's MVP. He was the first player from Glenbrook North ever to play in college.
After graduating from Duke, he played professional basketball in Finland for two years. Collins returned to the United States and became an assistant coach in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) for the Detroit Shock for one year and at Seton Hall for two years under Tommy Amaker. In 2000, he returned to his alma mater at Duke under Mike Krzyzewski as an assistant coach and was promoted to associate coach in the summer of 2008.
He was instrumental in Duke's signing of Jon Scheyer, a fellow Glenbrook North Mr. Basketball winner (2006), who, like Collins, had also considered attending Illinois.
When Bill Carmody was fired as head coach of Northwestern Wildcats men's basketball in March 2013, Collins was immediately mentioned as a primary target. Collins' hiring was announced March 27.
