    UW Football




    In 15 seasons as the Badgers' coach, Barry Alvarez has compiled a 108-70-4 record.




    Defensive coordinator Bret Bielema is the leading candidate to replace Barry Alvarez as head coach.

    Madison - Barry Alvarez, head football coach and athletic director at the University of Wisconsin, announced today that he will coach one more season - his 16th with the Badgers - before turning over the reins of the team to defensive coordinator Bret Bielema.

    Alvarez, 58, will continue on as athletic director, a job he added to his duties before last season.

    Bielema, 35, came to the Badgers before last season from Kansas State, where he served as co-defensive coordinator. Under Bielema last season, UW's defense led the team to a 9-0 start and No. 4 ranking in the nation. The Badgers faded down the stretch to finish 9-3.

    In 15 seasons as the Badgers' coach, Alvarez has taken a once-downtrodden program and compiled a 108-70-4 career record.

    His teams have won three Rose Bowls and gone to seven other bowl games, and won or shared three Big Ten championships.

    Alvarez succeeded Pat Richter as athletic director last year.

    Great decision to let Brett Bielema take over the reigns of the Badgers. I think Barry is going to stay on as AD.
