    Wisconsin to name Paul Chryst new HC

    And the worst-kept secret due to the hiring freeze enforced by the state is now official. It's a risky hire I think, but with Chryst's roots with Wisconsin football, I think it's a good one.

    The worst-kept secret in the Big Ten, and the ACC, is Paul Chryst was likely to be named the new head coach at Wisconsin as soon as possible. This became much more obvious when Chryst informed his Pittsburgh players following a Tuesday practice he was on his way to Madison to discuss the coaching vacancy at Wisconsin. Reports surfacing Tuesday evening say Wisconsin will introduce Chryst as the new head coach approximately 90 minutes after it will become legal to offer the job to any candidate.

    Benjamin Worgull of reports a press conference will be held at approximately 6:00 p.m. Central to introduce Chryst to the Wisconsin media.

    If he has not already, Pitt Athletics Director Steve Pederson may want to start making some phone calls to potential candidates to be the next head coach in western Pennsylvania. Pederson had appeared somewhat optimistic about his chances of keeping Chryst in charge at Pitt, but perhaps that was a bluff or ignorance.

    Chryst will replace Gary Andersen, who left Wisconsin for a head coaching job at Oregon State.

    Thus continuing a very interesting game of musical chairs on the D1 coaching carousel.

    I think he's a good fit for Wisconsin. Hasn't been great at Pitt but that program has been through a lot the last few years. Looks like this is his destination job and I can't see him doing worse than Andersen.
