Report: Barry Alvarez set to announce retirement plans Tuesday
MADISON, Wis. — University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is expected to announce his retirement Tuesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus.
The Journal Sentinel said Alvarez plans to formally step down before the beginning of the 2021-22 academic school year.
Going to be an interesting day Tuesday when #Badgers AD formally announces he is stepping down. I wasn’t there when he was introduced as head football coach in ’90 but I’ve attended some memorable pressers during his time at UW. What a run.

Alvarez brought the Badgers football program to prominence in the 90s, being the only Big Ten coach to win consecutive Rose Bowls.
He has served as UW’s athletic director since 2006.
Alvarez is slated to speak during the UW Now livestream at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
