Fresh off the most productive season by any quarterback in Wisconsin history, John Stocco has been named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award; UW Athletic Board announces contract renewals for 10 head coaches

Badger quarterback John Stocco is on the watch list for the Maxwell Award, which goes annually to the best college football player in the nation.

Last season Stocco set Wisconsin records with 2,920 passing yard, 21 passing touchdowns and 197 pass completions and his 328 pass attempts is the second-highest total in school history. He averaged 224.6 yards per game passing and had a 150.48 pass-efficiency rating.

In two years as UW’s starting quarterback, Stocco has compiled a 19-6 record. During that span his win total was only surpassed by Southern California’s Matt Leinart, Texas’s Vince Young (24) and Boise State’s Jared Zabransky (20).

Contract renewals announced for 10 coaches

The UW Athletic Board approved the contracts of 10 UW head coaches at its meeting on Friday.

The following coaches are on one-year contracts and had those contracts renewed for another year: Patti Henderson, women’s tennis; Greg Van Emburgh, men’s tennis; Chandelle Schulte, softball; Jim Stintzi, women’s cross country and track; Jim Schuman, men’s golf; Todd Oehrlein, women’s golf; Bebe Bryans, women’s rowing.

The following coaches have multi-year contracts and had one year added to those agreements: Chris Clark, men’s rowing (through June 30, 2009); Ed Nuttycombe, men’s track and field (through June 30, 2009); and Bo Ryan, men’s basketball (through May 31, 2013).
