College football coaches all have the same sales pitch. "I'm committed to you. Committed to this program. I'm here for you."
But in today's college football landscape that doesn't mean a whole lot. But Wisconsin head coach Gary Andersen wants to change all of that. Ever since he got to Madison he's been preaching stability and the importance of having a family atmosphere. For some players on the current Badgers roster, it's their second head coach and third or fourth position/assistant coach. But Andersen feels good about the transition period of his program.
"The kids were awesome. I think they did handle it very well... So we addressed it, we talked about it. It's like we talked about at the beginning. Trust is something that's earned. Trust is something that's built. If you want to build a family environment- we talked about it- it takes time to build that. I believe we've taken the right steps. I believe there's a good trust factor from the coaches to the players- the players to the coaches. It's always a work in progress. I really do feel good where we're at."
