Chryst, 57, was fired as Wisconsin’s head coach on Oct. 2 after a 2-3 start to the 2022 season. He posted a 67-26 record in 7+ seasons as the Badgers head coach.
Chryst has been in coaching since 1989. From 1991-to-2011, he was an offensive assistant for various college and professional teams. Chryst has been an offensive coordinator at Wisconsin, Oregon State, Illinois State, Wisconsin-Platteville and the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders.
It will be interesting to see how long Chryst is an analyst before getting another on-field coaching position.
