Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is set to retire in June, 31 years after being introduced as head coach of the Wisconsin football team.
From the moment he stepped to the podium on January 2, 1990, Alvarez promised a lot to a fanbase that was years removed from watching winning football.
And boy, did he deliver.
Barry Alvarez is retiring.
The @UWBadgers AD will make it official at a press conference today (1:30 ET, Big Ten Network).
Just for fun, here’s a look back at his introductory presser as @BadgerFootball coach on Jan. 2, 1990.
