Alvarez says Chryst ‘going to stay at Pitt’
Cross Pitt coach and former Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul
Chryst off the list of candidates for the Badgers job.
Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez says Chryst is ”going

Chryst released a statement Tuesday night saying he was
committed to Pitt, and Alvarez says it wouldn’t be right for him to
leave after just one year. The Panthers are 6-6 and will play
Mississippi in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
