Former University of Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema is a better coach than current Badgers coach Gary Andersen, according to rankings from the magazine Sporting News.
Bielema didn't have much to brag about in 2013 when his Arkansas Razorbacks finished with a dismal 3-9 record, but Bielema can boast about being ranked ahead of Andersen, whose Badgers ended up with a 9-4 record and went to a New Year's Day bowl game.
Bielema is 24th and Andersen 27th in the rankings by Sporting News writer Matt Hayes of all 124 coaches in NCAA Division 1A football.
The rankings also show how far a coach has risen or fallen since last year, with Andersen faring better than Bielema in that respect.
Andersen moved up 23 spots in his first year as the Badgers head coach after coaching at Utah State, while Bielema fell nine spots in his first season at the helm of the Razorbacks.
Not surprisingly, Alabama's Nick Saban is No. 1, while No. 2 is Steve Spurrier, coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks, which beat Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl, 34-24, on New Year's Day.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is No. 3, and Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio is No. 10.
