Badgers Introduce New Coach

by

MADISON, WI (WHBL) - Wisconsin’s new football coach vows to create a pressure-packed defense on every down. Gary Andersen says he also wants to continue the Badgers’ tradition of a solid running game from multiple sets and to create an explosive passing game so the option play can be more of a threat.  Andersen talked about some of his philosophies to U-W Badgers-Dot-Com, before he was to be introduced at a late morning news conference.  Athletic director Barry Alvarez hired the 48 year old Andersen on Tuesday, just two months after he accepted a contract extension at Utah State through 2018.  Andersen reportedly turned down three other job offers, including one at California, but he said that after Badgers’ coach Bret Bielema left, he was contacted by Alvarez.  He said the Wisconsin opening intrigued him, that he knew Wisconsin was a special place, and his job interview confirmed it.  Meanwhile, the Badgers continue to get ready to play Stanford in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day. The players insist they’re focused on the game, even with all the hype over the coaching situation.  Alvarez, a former Badgers’ football coach, is leading the team to Pasadena.
