Wisconsin Badgers, past and present, react to Bo Ryan’s retirement
In his time at Wisconsin, Ryan has a 364–130 record and has taken his team to the NCAA tournament in every season. The Badgers have also won four Big Ten regular-season championships and three Big Ten tournament championships during his tenure.
It was announced that associate head coach Greg Gard will take over in place of Ryan.
Several current and former Wisconsin Badgers said goodbye to the Badgers’ longtime coach, and thanked him for all that he’s done.
