Alvarez says Chryst is 'going to stay at Pitt'



MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez silenced the rumors of former Badgers offensive coordinator and current Pittburgh head coach Paul Chryst possibly becoming the Badgers next head coach. Alvarez said Thursday at his press conference that Chryst is "going to stay at Pitt." Alvarez says he helped Chryst get the job at Pitt last year, and doesn't think it would be appropriate to hire him away after such a short time. 
   Chryst is from Madison and remains a popular figure at Wisconsin, and was considered the favorite to replace Bret Bielema. 
   Chryst released a statement Tuesday night saying he was committed to Pitt, and Alvarez says it wouldn't be right for him to leave after just one year. The Panthers are 6-6 and will play Mississippi in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
