Chryst, Crist Watch - Sunday, December 18

The Badgers are in danger of losing one Chryst, while hoping to add another (Crist). Here's the latest on both:

Paul Chryst

4:22 p.m. - Chryst refused to comment when asked about the Pitt job while meeting with reporters Sunday.

3:39 p.m. - Pitt has released an official statement denying that they have offered the job to anyone:

"The Pitt football head coaching position has not been offered to anyone, nor have any decisions on an offer been made."

2 p.m. - The UW offensive coordinator interviewed at Pitt Saturday as the Badgers had a day off of practice, but it sounds as though they'll keep their play-caller for at least the Rose Bowl. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus is reporting Florida International head coach Mario Cristobal is the favorite to land the Pitt job. He was reportedly offered the job late Saturday.

Chryst still appears ready to leave for a head coaching job, but the number of jobs available are dwindling.

Dayne Crist

5:37 p.m. - Crist tells BadgerNation.com that he was actually in Madison from Friday to Sunday and he expects to make his decision sometime this week. Crist said like Russell Wilson, Bret Bielema did not guarantee him a starting job. And not surprisingly, Crist spent a lot of time with Wilson over the weekend.

"Russell was clearly the biggest name in using this rule to our advantage," Crist added. "Just seeing the success he had was really exciting and obviously sparked a lot of interest in Wisconsin."

2 p.m. - The Notre Dame transfer visited Madison Thursday and Friday and the Chicago Tribune reported the quarterback is choosing between Kansas and Wisconsin. A decision could come as soon as this weekend.

Crist wrote on his Twitter account Sunday: "Thank you to everyone for the love and support."

It looks like a decision will come soon.
