Report: Tony Bennett to Wisconsin? It's possible.


If Greg Gard doesn't get the nod to replace Bo Ryan, it's reasonable to think Tony Bennett might be the top candidate to come back to his father's school to take the reigns of the program. Dick Bennett coached the Badgers from 1995 to 2001, directly before Ryan. Also like Ryan, Bennett coached at other UW schools including Stevens Point and Green Bay.

Tony Bennett, 46, is a Clintonville, Wis., native. He played at Green Bay and has coached Virginia since 2009, amassing a 136-64 record with the Cavaliers.
