As arguably one of the nation’s top college basketball coaches, Wisconsin’s Bo Ryan announced that he would retire after this upcoming season. Ryan has been the team’s head coach since 2001, amassing a 357-125 overall record over that time. He has led his team to the NCAA Tournament every year, highlighted by two straight Final Four appearances. Thus, he hopes to continue his success in his 15th and final season as head coach.
While the team will be missing their legendary coach, Ryan made it clear that he wants to see his assistant, Greg Gard, to be his successor. Gard has spent most of his career with Ryan, starting together at UW-Platteville, then going to UW-Milwaukee, and ultimately to University of Wisconsin. Gard has constantly been called one of the best assistants in basketball and will certainly be highly considered to be Ryan’s replacement.
