Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan is retiring effective immediately, he said Tuesday after the team’s win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Longtime assistant Greg Gard is taking over as interim head coach. “After months of conversation with Barry Alvarez and his administrative staff, as well as my wife, Kelly, I have decided that now is the right time to step down from the head coaching position here at Wisconsin,” Ryan said in a statement released after the game. Ryan coached Wisconsin to a school-record 36 wins last season and a loss in the national championship game against Duke. Wisconsin is 7-5 this season, one more loss than the Badgers had all last season. Ryan, who turns 68 on Sunday, had said in a statement in June that he would coach this season and then step down. –ESPN, Read More
