Madison, WI ( - Gary Andersen is leaving Wisconsin after two seasons to coach Oregon State. Both schools announced the move Wednesday afternoon after Andersen told the Badgers football team of his decision. He will take over for Mike Riley, who left Oregon State after 14 seasons to take the Nebraska job last week. Andersen, 50, was 19-7 as coach of the Badgers with a loss to South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl in January. They went 10-3 this season, winning the Big Tens West Division before losing a 59-0 rout to Ohio State in Saturdays conference title game and landing a New Years Day bowl game. He will be formally introduced by Oregon State at a news conference on Friday afternoon. We have hired the right coach, Oregon State athletic director Bob De Carolis said in a statement. We are investing in the new and expanded facilities he needs, including the $42 million makeover of the Valley Football Center we announced earlier today. We are ready to have Gary take us to the next level. Before he was hired by Wisconsin in December 2012, Andersen went 26-24 in four seasons at Utah State with a 1-1 record at the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Prior to that, he was a longtime assistant coach, including a stint at Utah as the defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. Wisconsin, which finished 18th in the College Football Playoff rankings, is due to play Auburn in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1. Barry Alvarez, the longtime Badgers coach who is now Wisconsins athletic director, said he began working to find a new head coach as soon as Andersen said he was leaving. My first concern is taking care of the players on the current team, especially the senior class, and ensuring that their bowl experience is a memorable one, said Alvarez, who coached Wisconsin from 1990-2005. Alvarez coached the Badgers in the Rose Bowl two seasons ago after Andersen was hired to replace Bret Bielema, who left for Arkansas. The Badgers lost the game to Stanford. Riley spent 14 seasons at Oregon State, first from 1997-98 and then again from 2003-14 after spending three years coaching the NFLs San Diego Chargers. The Beavers went 93-80 under Riley, who took over at Nebraska after Bo Pelini was fired. Oregon State went 5-7 this season, missing a bowl game for the first time in three years. .C. - Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Danny Granger, Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem are still not ready to play and will miss Wednesday nights game against the Charlotte Hornets. . In the days leading up to the draft, and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Tonight, Michigans Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ontario. -- The road to the Masters got off to a bumpy start Sunday for Tiger Woods when he withdrew from the Honda Classic with what he said was a lower back injury. . -- Albert Pujols is thrilled to have a reason to forget about his first two disappointing seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. .9 million deal Thursday. The 25-year McGinn had 19 goals and 19 assists in 79 games last season in helping the Avalanche tie a franchise record with 52 wins.Best goalie mask: There were some great masks from Nordiques goaltenders.Ron Hextall:(Image via Pro Hockey FR)Jocelyn Thibault:(Image via Tenders Lounge)Stephane Fiset:(Image via Goalies Archive)Best moustache: Michel Goulet(Image via Jsportsblogger)(Image via The Score)Best/Worst mullet: Chris Lindberg(Image via Mile High Hockey)Did you know? Montreal Canadiens anthem singer Ginette Reno had previously performed at a Nordiques game.Do they have a goal song? Why yes they do. Its incredibly campy.Did they have a mascot? Yes, its name was Badaboum.(Image via Flickr)Biggest fight: Ah, the provincial rivalry: Montreal vs Quebec. Things often got testy, for example this bench clearing brawl.Best trade:(Image via Melt Your Faceoff)In what arguably is one of the best trades in NHL history, the Nordiques traded the rights to Eric Lindros (who didnt want to play with the team) to the Philadelphia Flyers for the rights to Peter Forsberg, Ron Hextall, Chris Simon, Mike Ricci, Kerry Huffman, Steve Duchesne, a 1993 1st round selection (which turned out to be Jocelyn Thibault) a 1994 1st round pick (traded to Toronto) and $15 million dollars. The trade ultimately shaped the 1996 Stanley Cup winning Colorado Avalanche.Check out the TSN special on the deal.What would the Nordiques new logo look like if they hadnt moved? The team ran this new logo in the Canadian press they would have used had they not moved to Colorado(Images via Wikipedia)Last game: May 16, 1995. The Quebec Nordiques fell to the New York Rangers 4-2 in Game 6 of their first round series.Captain: Joe Sakic(Image via Denver Post)Whyd the move? The team faced serious financial problems, despite having a fairly stable fan base. With the weakened Canadian dollar, the team just couldnt compete against American teams. Eventually the team was sold to the same owners of Denver Nuggets, and the team became the Colorado Avalanche.What does a former player have to say?Goaltender Ron Tugnutt(Image via Goalies Archive)What was it like to be a member of the Nordiques?It was pretty cool acctually.dddddddddddd I loved the city and the culture. Theres a fortunate and an unfortunate; for me they were going through a youth movement change therefore I got to crack the lineup at a young age. At 20 I was playing in the NHL, which was nice. The downside was that we were going through that youth change and there was a lot of losing that was taking place. In general though, it was a great experience.What was it like to play in the Quebec market?It was great. I did pick up some French along the way, I took it in school, but once youre living their, you tend to improve. The old part of downtown was very French and ordering food and dinner was tough, but the culture was fantastic. It was a great place to start my career.What was the best part about playing there?I think playing my first NHL game would be the highlight, because everybodys dream is to play in the NHL, so it was cool to accomplish that. My biggest highlight was meeting a lot of good friends - they were all young guys and getting to know each other and stuff. I think that would be a huge highlight for me in Quebec City. Its hard; I enjoyed my time there. I have no problem with being there at all.Do you think hockey could thrive in that market again?Yeah, with the cap world they might be able too. For small market teams, its always going to be hard to keep all of your players, like in Winnipeg and Ottawa, because its difficult because there is bigger money elsewhere.Was it tough being in the same market as Montreal?No not at all because that was the rivalry, to me those were some of the best games to play. We never knew what would happen on those nights. It was always a very physical match. I thought that was a great thing to be so close to Montreal and be in that same market. Believe me, there was almost as many Quebec Nordiques fans in la belle province, and it always made for great entertainment.Previous #TBTsAtlanta ThrashersHartford WhalersCalifornia Golden Seals Colorado Rockies(Stats and info via Hockeydb and Sports E-Cylcopedia) Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
