University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez was in northwest Ohio on Tuesday, presumably interviewing a potential head coaching candidate, multiple sources close to the UW football program told the State Journal.
I mentioned Toledo coach Matt Campbell as a potential target from that area, based on information we had received, which we were attempting to confirm.
Thanks to the Twitterverse for helping out on this one. As many people on Twitter were quick to point out, a potential meeting between Alvarez and Campbell could not have taken place on Tuesday.
The Rockets left for their bowl game in Boise on Monday night.
I apologize for the misinformation. As I said, we were in the process of checking out what we had heard. This was an attempt by me, based on information we thought was credible, to connect the dots, which obviously did not lead to Campbell.
Still, that leads to the question of who Alvarez was talking to in Ohio?
We're still working on that one. Maybe the Twitter world has more thoughts?
