MADISON (WAOW) – UW-Madison head basketball coach Bo Ryan says he's going to coach the team for his last season.

@BadgerMBB tweeted a statement from Ryan Monday afternoon.

It says Athletic Director Barry Alvarez encouraged Ryan to consider if he wanted to retire after the Badgers lost in the NCAA Championship game in the spring.

Ryan says after thinking it over, he decided to coach one more season, “with the hope that my longtime assistant Greg Gard eventually becomes the head coach at Wisconsin.”

“I am looking forward to another year with our program, including our players, my terrific assistant coaches, our office staff and everyone who supports Wisconsin basketball here in Madison, around the state and across the country,” the statement said.
