Barry Alvarez Speaking FeeFormer University of Wisconsin football coach and current athletic director Barry Alvarez was the keynote speaker at Fox Valley Technical Institute in Appleton. The 66-year-old Alvarez discussed his first-year coach Gary Andersen, the upcoming BCS Championship Game, his role on the new College Football Playoff Committee, Russell Wilson and his future at Wisconsin.

“Gary has been embraced very well by our fans. It’s hard to make that transition sometimes. I felt he’d be a good fit and he’s proven to be that.” said Alvarez.

On July 28, 2005, Alvarez announced that after the 2005 season he would step down as head coach. Alvarez named then defensive coordinator Bret Bielema as his successor.

Alvarez concluded his career at Wisconsin with a win over the Auburn Tigers in the 2006 Capital One Bowl, bringing his all-time record at Wisconsin to 118-€“73-€“4 (.615), with three Rose Bowl wins and an 8-€“3 (.727) record in bowl games, the best winning percentage ever for a coach in Division I-A bowl games (minimum 11 bowl games coached). In October 13, 2006, a bronze statue of Alvarez was unveiled in the Kellner Plaza of Camp Randall Stadium. The statue honoring Alvarez had been announced the previous year, at his last home game as head coach.
