Pitt HC Paul Chryst is on way to Madison and is set to meet with UW, sources tell @FOXSports. Chryst appears to be front runner for the job.— Ross Jones (@RossJonesFOX) December 12, 2014
This is @SectionMZ on the TSS account. There's a growing sense that Paul Chryst will be Barry Alvarez's choice at Wisconsin. We'll see.— The Student Section (@TheStudentSect) December 12, 2014
There were also pictures of Chryst returning from Atlanta on a flight to Pittsburgh so take that as you will.
Paul Zeise also claimed on 93.7 The Fan that Pitt will make a last ditch effort to keep Chryst tomorrow. We'll update as more info is released.
