Getting to know incoming Wisconsin Athletic Director Chris McIntosh: From on-field success to succeeding Barry Alvarez

Chris McIntosh became Wisconsin’s athletic director during one of the most pivotal moments in the history of college sports.
McIntosh, who joined the Badgers athletic department in 2014, took over as AD on July 1, the same day that the name, image, and likeness era began. McIntosh spoke with The Athletic on Monday about navigating NIL, how his time as a Badgers All-American offensive lineman impacts him in his current role, his abrupt NFL retirement, and following in Alvarez’s footsteps.
The quick response is that it has been fantastic.
That is, as you are aware, an tremendously exciting period.
It’s a historic time to be a part of college athletics on a national one, and then to be a part of it on a local level.
