FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Monday: Dan returns

Wisconsin AD Barry Alvarez joined the show to talk about coach Bret Bielema leaving and taking over to coach in the Rose Bowl.

“I wasn’t real happy when it happened,” Alvarez said. “I understand it. We’ve had such stability here. I went 16 straight years. Bret seven. We’re not accustomed to change here. I see it around the country. I know how it works.”

Dan asked why he thinks Bielema left. “He said he had a better chance to win a championship,” Alvarez said.

Alvarez said they’ve already started their search. Dan asked about Chris Peterson.

“I haven’t talked to Chris Peterson,” Alvarez said. “I always felt Chris was pretty locked in at Boise. …I may ask to see if he’s interested. “

Dan asked if he would do one season. “I’d prefer not to,” Alvarez said.
