Multiple media outlets are reporting Wisconsin will hire Utah State’s Gary Andersen as head football coach to replace Bret Bielema.
The Wisconsin State Journal was first to report that Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez had offered Andersen the job Tuesday night. Andersen is in his fourth year at Utah State and is coming off his best season yet.
The 18th-ranked Aggies won the Western Athletic Conference and finished 11-2.
The 48-year-old Andersen is 26-24 at Utah State.
