Updated:PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - Cross Pitt coach and former Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst off the list of candidates for the Badgers job.
Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said Chryst is "going to stay at Pitt." Alvarez said he helped Chryst get the job at Pitt last year, and doesn't think it would be appropriate to hire him away after such a short time.
Chryst is from Madison and remains a popular figure at Wisconsin, and was considered the favorite to replace Bret Bielema.
Chryst released a statement Tuesday night saying he was committed to Pitt, and Alvarez said it wouldn't be right for him to leave after just one year. The Panthers are 6-6 and will play Mississippi in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
