Paul Chryst says 'there's no way' he's leaving for the NFL
Paul Chryst was the latest-rumored B1G head coach to be a candidate for the vacancy with the Los Angeles Rams.
And on Tuesday, the Wisconsin coach became the latest to denounce any speculation that he might be interested in trading Saturdays for Sundays.
In an interview with ESPN Wisconsin’s Wilde & Tausche Show, Chryst put to rest any worries about leaving Madison and had some fun while doing so:
It was clearly our enemies putting it out there. That’s what it is. It’s our enemies. We’re going to rally around it and go forward.
Clearly Chryst had heard about Jim Harbaugh’s reaction to the rumors when there were rumors floating around that the Michigan head coach would be headed to L.A. Chryst closed out his comments on heading to the NFL by saying “there’s no way.”
Chryst has spent the past two seasons at Wisconsin and has a 20-6 record. This year, he led the Badgers to a B1G West title and an appearance in the conference title game.
Wisconsin finished the year ranked No. 8 in the College Football Playoff rankings and will play in the Cotton Bowl against Western Michigan on Jan. 2.
Rumors about B1G coaches heading to the NFL to take over the Rams are 0-2.
