Chryst is a Madison native, played quarterback for the Badgers from 1986-88, and had two coaching stops at the school. He was Wisconsin's tight ends coach in 2002, and was its offensive coordinator from 2005 until 2011.

The Badgers have been looking for a new coach ever since Gary Andersen surprisingly left the school and took the head coaching job at Oregon State on Dec. 10. Pitt has gone 19-19 with a 10-13 conference mark during Chryst's tenure.
