SHARE Wisconsin hoops coach Bo Ryan to retire after next season

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan says he plans to retire after next season.

Ryan made the surprising announcement on Monday. Ryan says he considered retiring after the Badgers lost in the national championship game to Duke, but athletic director Barry Alvarez told him to take some time to think about it.

After mulling his future for a few months, the 67-year-old Ryan says he has decided to coach one more season. He also says he hopes longtime assistant Greg Gard will be chosen to replace him.

Ryan has coached the Badgers for 14 years. He led them to the Final Four in each of the past two seasons.
