New Rule For Next Badger Coach

by

MADISON, WI (WSAU) Wisconsin’s next football coach will not be able to surprise U-W officials like Bret Bielema did when he bolted for Arkansas last week. Athletic director Barry Alvarez says that a clause will be put into the next coach’s contract. He said it will require that his office be informed before another school has any contact with the coach – otherwise, it will be considered a breach-of-contract against the Badgers’ field leader.

Alvarez said his office normally contacts another school’s athletic office before making contact with a coach it might want to hire – and other schools should do the same. Alvarez said he didn’t know that Bielema was leaving until the day it was announced last Tuesday – and some of the coach’s closest associates in Madison didn’t know.

Meanwhile, media reports say Wisconsin receivers’ coach Zach Azzanni is no longer a possible candidate to join Bielema at Arkansas. Azzanni and the other Wisconsin assistants plan to stay with the team at least through the January first Rose Bowl Game against Stanford.
