Wisconsin, who will be coached by AD Barry Alvarez in the upcoming Rose Bowl vs. Stanford January 1st, has hired Utah State head coach Gary Anderson to replace head coach Bret Bielema, who left to coach at Arkansas.
This hire is a big deal for the NFL, as Wisconsin has been a powerful farm system for the NFL, propelling the eventual 2012 Defensive MVP, DE J.J. Watt, to the Houston Texans.
This also means that Brad Childress, once rumored for the job, will – for now – keep his job perched in the booth as offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.
13 Wisconsin Badgers have been selected over the last three NFL drafts.
Gary Andersen had a 26-24 record as head coach of the Utah State Aggies. He brought them to their first two bowl games in 14 years. Also, the 2012 team was the first undisputed conference championship team for Utah State since 1979.
