After Wisconsin's embarrassing first-round loss, fans were ready to see Greg Gard go. Now it is almost a month later and nothing has been said of whether or not Gard is staying or going. Since nothing has been said, it looks like fans are going to get what they want.

The Badgers looked like they could deliver a quality appearance in the NCAA Tournament after falling just short of winning the Big Ten Tournament. Instead of making it back to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2017, the Badgers, a 5-seed, lost to 12-seed James Madison in a game where Wisconsin never seemed to be in it.

Fans are ready to see a change on the court and it is not looking like it's going to happen. So let's have some fun and think about look at which coaches could take over at Wisconsin. Now this is a list of dream coaches, so think about who fans would want if they could have anyone. Here are those dreams coaches.

player. . 1999-present. . Mark Few. Wisconsin coaches. . Mark Few. 5. 541

Mark Few has been at Gonzaga for 25 years and has built a very successful Group of Five program that always seems to be in the mix of things come March. Few has led the Bulldogs to two National Championship games but unfortunately wasn't able to come away with the win in either one.

Few has also led the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament every season he coached. They have made the Sweet 16 12 times, the Elite Eight five times, and the Final Four two times. Few is a proven winner een with a smaller program.

This would be a dream hire not just for Wisconsin but for any program. While Few hasn't been able to win the big one yet, he has shown he knows how to take his team far in the tournament consistently. Few has also shown that he can have great teams even with smaller-name recruits. Imagine who he could get with the big name and resources Wisconsin has.

Few could probably be really successful at Wisconsin and help them not only make the NCAA Tournament more consistently, but also avoid upsets in early rounds.
