MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - After a long run as Wisconsin’s athletic director, Barry Alvarez is expected to announce his retirement in the next couple weeks. This, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Alvarez, now 74, led the Badgers’ return to glory on the gridiron as football coach from 1990 to 2005.
