It might seem like the University of Wisconsin football program has always been a powerhouse, but that wasn’t the case before the arrival of coach Barry Alvarez. When Alvarez took over as head coach in 1990, the program was in shambles and they posted a dreadful record of 1-10. But just three years later, Alvarez took the Badgers to the Rose Bowl and a 21-16 victory over UCLA for Wisconsin’s first victory in the “Granddaddy of them All.” Under Alvarez, the Badgers won seven more bowl games, including two more Rose Bowls. And even though Alvarez only coached the Badgers for 15 years, he is undoubtedly the most successful and popular coach in the history of Wisconsin football. Alvarez stepped down from coaching in 2005 with a career record of 118-74-4 and he is now the Athletic Director at Wisconsin. Alvarez is also the author of an autobiography entitled “Don’t Flinch,” and he has worked as a TV commentator for FOX Sports.
