Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator and former Minnesota Vikings head coach Brad Childress is "intrigued" by Wisconsin's head-coaching job and is an option for the position, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on Thursday.

The job opened up on Wednesday, when Bret Bielema bolted for the head job at Arkansas.

For eight seasons in the 1990s, Childress was a member of the coaching staff of Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez,  who will coach the Badgers in the Rose Bowl next month.

During his five seasons as Wisconsin's offensive coordinator, Childress earned praise for his work with Heisman Trophy-winning running back Ron Dayne. He left the school in 1999 to coach the quarterbacks with the Philadelphia Eagles, and he subsequently spent three seasons as their offensive coordinator.

Childress moved on to spend parts of five seasons as the Vikings head coach, where he had some success but was ultimately fired 10 games into the 2010 season.
