Wisconsin coaches reportedly never got car, car stipends they were promised
More and more details are emerging about Gary Andersen’s unhappiness at Wisconsin that led him to leave the Badgers program for Oregon State.
Not only was Andersen frustrated with the academic restrictions and lack of pay for his assistants, but there were other things like broken promises that upset him.
According to WEEI’s Kevin Graham, Wisconsin promised cars or car stipends to the school’s football coaches but never fulfilled the promise. Graham adds that Andersen said something to Barry Alvarez about it multiple times, but the complaint got kicked around and stuck in the school’s bureaucracy.
Wisconsin is still a good job because of its history as a strong football program, but these sorts of issues are examples of why it is less than an ideal position for prospective coaches.
