MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - University of Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez is expected to announce his retirement, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Alvarez established Wisconsin football as a Big Ten power in the 1990s— leading them to three Big Ten titles and three Rose Bowl championships. He has served as UW’s Athletic Director since 2006.

Alvarez is expected to make an official announcement in the coming weeks, Jeff Potrykus with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweeted Saturday. Potrykus indicated Alavarez could stay on through July.
