Wisconsin went from unranked to No. 10 in the AP Poll with one win. Now Badgers coach Paul Chryst is getting his own kind of recognition.
Chryst is The Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week after leading Wisconsin to a 16-14 upset against then-No. 5 LSU this past Saturday at Lambeau Field.
Jim Terry, Chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, on Chryst:
“Coach Paul Chryst consistently reinforces the importance of focus in the classroom and dedication to the community, while also pushing his players to perform on the field,” said Jim Terry, Chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation. “We’re proud to recognize his leadership and look forward to seeing his continued success this season.”
At the end of the season, the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation names its coach of the year. Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz won the award in 2015.
Congratulations to @BadgerFootball's Paul Chryst—Week 1's Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week!
