Wisconsin Badgers athletic director Barry Alvarez will retire from his post June 30, he announced Tuesday.

Alvarez, 74, has led Wisconsin's athletic department since 2004 and served as the Badgers' football coach from 1990 to 2005, when he revived the program with three Big Ten championships and three Rose Bowl victories. He spent two seasons as both athletic director and head football coach roles before moving fully into an administrative role.

Alvarez is the active athletic director with the third-longest tenure at one major program, trailing only Oklahoma's Joe Castiglione and Kentucky's Mitch Barnhart.
