Miami head coach Al Golden has been linked to the Wisconsin job pretty much since Bret Bielema left for Arkansas. Given the somewhat slow (perhaps rightfully so) nature of the subsequent coaching search led by Director of Athletics (and interim head coach) Barry Alvarez, the pool of possible candidates has done nothing but gradually diminish.
First, it was Willie Taggart taking the job at South Florida. Now, it appears Golden will remain at Miami.
Wisconsin gauged interest Al Golden according to a source, but he is not entertaining interest from the Badgers or other colleges now.— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) December 11, 2012
Multiple programs have reached out to Al Golden, per source, but he is excited about youthful roster and fact UM is already moving forward— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) December 11, 2012
Granted, Schad's report seems to be the singular one at this point. It does, however jive with what we've heard so far:
