Quinn to name ex-US Attorney Fitzgerald to U of I board

Former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald is getting a new job.

Governor Quinn has named Fitzgerald to the University Of Illinois Board Of Trustees.

Fitzgerald served more than a decade as the federal prosecutor for Northern Illinois.

He won corruption convictions against Quinn’s two predecessors, Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan.

Fitzgerald is now back in private practice.

The U of I board is expected to confirm his appointment next week.
