In a shocking move nobody could see coming, current Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema will leave the Badgers for the same position at the University of Arkansas according to a report by Pat Forde of Yahoo! Sports.
The news was greeted with mixed emotions, with many Razorback fans excited at the prospect of bringing in a coach with three straight Rose Bowl appearances, while a majority of Wisconsin fans aren't sad to see Bielema bolt from Madison.
Who coaches the Badgers in the Rose Bowl is a different story, as it appears Bielema is no longer an option (h/t Adam Hoge). Perhaps Barry Alvarez will come down from his AD position and coach the team (h/t Rick Pizzo)?
Details continue to surface by the second, but for now, let's take a look at the top 5 candidates Wisconsin should be considering to replace Bielema.
