    Wisconsin to hire Gary Andersen (Utah State)

    Report: Wisconsin to hire Gary Andersen - CBSSports.com

    Wisconsin has found its new head coach, and it's Utah State 's Gary Andersen.

    Reports first surfaced on Tuesday evening that the Utah State coach had interviewed for the position and had emerged as a favorite, and now reports say Andersen is no longer the favorite. He's the choice.


    The Wisconsin State Journal is reporting that Andersen is a done deal and will succeed Bret Bielema at Wisconsin.

    They can't be overly happy about this. Probably expecting some huge name.

    IMO this is an excellent hire for Wisc. Blue collar guy for a blue collar team.

    Re: Wisconsin to hire Gary Andersen (Utah State)

    Most people were not expecting a big name actually. Maybe on the message boards they were, but anyone with any knowledge knows whoever they hired would have to do it Barry's way. A big name wouldn't have wanted that. This is a solid hire.

    That was the guy I was hoping Pollard had at the top of his " just in case" coaching list. Great hire.

    Sounds like he told reporters that he was firmly entrenched at USU just a couple weeks ago.

    3.5 million reasons to get out of the trench plus a major D1 program on your resume? USU has no gripe here.

    Good hire for Wisky... Looks like Alvarez looked outside the box.

    This is a good hire. Not great, but great would have been B1G champs which wasn't going to happen shortly.

    USU runs a spread right? Things could look different in Madison.
