Pitt coach Paul Chryst released a statement tonight regarding his consideration for the now-vacant Wisconsin head coaching job.

Badgers coach Bret Bielema took the head coaching job at Arkansas this afternoon, and rumors immediately started swirling that Chryst, a Wisconsin graduate, could replace Bielema at his alma mater. Chryst was the offensive coordinator for the Badgers from 2005-2011.

Chryst, though, said in a statement tonight that he was "committed to the Pitt football program."

The statement, in full, reads:

"I understand the speculation surrounding my name given today's developments. I am committed to the Pitt football program and the University of Pittsburgh. I am focusing all my time and energy on our team's bowl game preparation and recruiting a great group of young men to join our program and this outstanding university. We are working hard every day to re-establish this program and I am excited about the future of Pitt football."
