Wisconsin football coach Paul Chryst has been named the coach of the year in the Big Ten.
He was named the coach of the year by both the media and the fellow Big Ten coaches after he led Wisconsin do an undefeated 12-0 regular season.
Consensus is he’s a good one

I’d say I’m surprised, but we all know that this is exactly the right choice.
Of course Chryst was going to win this award. He took a bunch of Midwest kids, athletes most major schools overlooked, and won the toughest conference in America (cry for me, SEC). Predicting this award was as easy as stealing candy from baby.
I’m often asked if winning so much as a Wisconsin man ever gets old. The honest answer is, it sometimes does, but this is the cross I must bear. I’m sure it’ll even be tougher to handle after we stomp all over Ohio State.
