Pitt coach Chryst waiting on Wisconsin decision

Posted: Updated:

Pittsburgh coach Paul Chryst says he is waiting for a final decision on the open job at Wisconsin just like everybody else.

Chryst said Monday he has talked to the Badgers about the head coaching position but does not anticipate hearing anything definitive before Wednesday. Chryst is a former Wisconsin player and assistant coach. He is 19-19 in three seasons with the Panthers and spoke Monday in Fort Worth, where Pitt will play Houston in the Armed Forces Bowl on Jan. 2.

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said the school has to wait until Wednesday at the earliest before naming a successor to Gary Andersen, who left after two seasons to coach at Oregon State.

The Badgers have also spoken to former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano about the job.
