The University of Wisconsin did not follow procedure when Athletic Director and football coach Barry Alvarez picked his successor.
School regulations require the university to post the job vacancy for two weeks before filling the job. Casey Nagy, Assistant to the U.W. chancellor, says he didn't know the school needed to post the job.
Earlier this week, Alvarez announced he would step down as football coach after the 2005 season to focus on his role as Athletic Director.
He named defensive coordinator Bret Bielema as his replacement.
Nagy says he doesn't think this will jeopardize Bielema's hiring.
