A second Chryst joins Wisconsin's staff for upcoming season
It’s about to be a family affair on the Wisconsin staff this season.
Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst will unite with his nephew Keller, who is joining the program as a grad assistant. Keller Chryst previously played collegiately at Stanford and Tennessee from 2015-2018.
And the #Badgers have another Chryst in the program. Former Stanford/Tennessee QB Keller Chryst is a grad assistant. He is the son of Geep Chryst and nephew of UW’s head coach.
