In news that reminds me I’m still not over The Loss, Wisconsin announced that Bo Ryan will retire after next season. Rumors have been swirling on social media about Ryan’s retirement this morning, and he confirmed the news in a press release.
“Back in the spring, in the days after the national championship game, (UW Director of Athletics) Barry Alvarez and I discussed the possibility of me retiring,” Ryan said. “I’ve always been told tht is not a decision to make right after a season is completed. Barry Thankfully encouraged me to take some time to think about it and I have done that. I considered retiring this summer or coaching one more season.”
Coming off back-to-back Final Fours with the cupboard practically bare, you have to wonder why Ryan didn’t just go ahead and retire after this season, but I guess he wants a farewell tour. Just no more Final Fours, please.
