Andersen Changes Directions, Heads to Wisconsin

All signs point to Gary Andersen being introduced as the new Wisconsin football coach on Friday.

MADISON (AP)-- Gary Andersen not long ago pledged his allegiance to Utah State. Now he's on the verge of becoming Wisconsin's coach.
Wisconsin reportedly will hire Andersen to replace Bret Bielema, who left the Badgers this month to take the Arkansas job.
The news about Andersen broke Tuesday night and neither Utah State nor Wisconsin had anything official to announce about Andersen on Wednesday. The delay is at least in part tied to laws in Wisconsin that require a state job to be posted for at least two weeks before it can be filled. The two-week posting was up at the end of business on Wednesday.
The school was expected to introduce Andersen at a news conference Thursday, but a snowstorm heading for Madison might change those plans.
