Alvarez says Chryst will stay at Pitt

Written by Sam Werner on .

Here's a link to the breaking news story from the P-G on Barry Alvarez's statement about Paul Chryst this morning. I'll work to confirm any more details this afternoon, but it sounds pretty firm that Alvarez will not pursue Chryst as a candidate for the Badgers job. Here's Alvarez's full answer to a question about Chryst's candidacy...

ALVAREZ: I asked some very good friends of mine to help Paul get that job. I think Paul has already come out and said that he's committed to Pitt. I think he should be committed to Pitt. I wouldn't think it would be right for him to leave after one year. I wouldn't feel right, and I don't think it would be appropriate for me to hire him back after I asked someone to do me a favor and help him get that job. So Paul's going to stay at Pitt.

Obviously things can change quickly in a coaching search, but that's about as firm a statement as you can get.
