John Pappadopoulos’s favorite head basketball coach is sticking around for another few years in Madison.
Greg Gard was one of six Wisconsin coaches the school announced would be receiving an extension, keeping him with the program until mid 2026. Along with Gard, head football coach Paul Chryst also received an extension through January of 2026, both men and women’s hockey coaches Tony Granato and Mark Johnson are being kept until mid 2026, and the swimming & diving and wrestling coaches will also be kept through 2024.
In his five seasons with Wisconsin, Gard is 101-57, most recently losing to eventual tournament champion Baylor in the Second Round. The Badgers finished 18-13 in the 2020-21 regular season.
