Wisconsin’s next football coach is . . . .?

[ 0 ] December 12, 2012 |

So, who calls the head coaching shots when Wisconsin visits Kinnick Stadium on Nov. 2 next season?

Here’s the latest, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

 Madison – Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez, speaking Wednesday afternoon on “College Football Playbook” on SiriusXM Radio, shed a bit of light on his search for a new head football coach.
According to Alvarez, he has interviewed two candidates.
One is known to be former UW defensive back Melvin Tucker, currently the defensive coordinator with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tucker said recently he was not interested in the UW job at this time.“I’m expecting a call from one (candidate) today to set up an interview,” said Alvarez, who was in his UW office. “There is speculation here every day.
“But they’re just random names being thrown out with no substance.”
UW has lost one assistant so far. Defensive coordinator Chris Ash has agreed to join former UW coach Bret Bielema at Arkansas.
Alvarez reiterated Wednesday the other staff members are weighing options while UW searches for a replacement for Bielema.
“I’m impressed with this staff,” Alvarez said. “I have no problem recommending any of them to whoever is here.”
