Horns, NFL’s Cowboys sniffing around Wisconsin’s Chryst
Posted by John Taylor
A week ago, Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst denied he had been contacted by Texas regarding the same job with the Longhorns.
Now, not only has there reportedly been contact with UT, another Texas team — albeit at a higher level — could also look to pry the coordinator away from the Badgers.
By way of madison.com, it’s being reported that Chryst was in Austin Monday interviewing with the Longhorns for their coordinator vacancy. It’s unclear if Chryst has been offered, or will be offered, the job that came open upon Greg Davis‘ resignation.
Additionally, the website reports, the Dallas Cowboys could have an interest in Chryst as well. The Badgers assistant and interim Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett are close friends, and Garrett is expected to have the interim label ripped from his title at some point in the near future. A school source told the site that the Cowboys could throw a pretty sizable sum of money at Chryst that UW would not be able to match.
Of course, as the site notes, so could UT.
A new deal for Chryst, who currently makes less than $400,000 annually, is supposedly in the works.
