Ex-Northwestern AD Mark Murphy named in new hazing lawsuits

August 3, 2023

Four former Northwestern football players filed lawsuits Thursday against the school alleging hazing and mistreatment, with two naming former athletic director and current Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy as a defendant for the first time.

The two former players, who both filed under "John Doe," were at Northwestern from 2004 to 2008. Murphy served as athletic director from 2003 to 2007, when he left for the Packers. Both of the players' lawsuits also name former coach Pat Fitzgerald, former university president Henry Bienen and the school's board of trustees as defendants. Bienen served as president from 1995 to 2009.
