He is in the process of moving down the hall at the Kohl Center, though Gard has more pressing matters on his to-do list. Wisconsin's game Wednesday against Green Bay is Gard's debut as the Badgers' interim coach following the abrupt retirement of longtime boss Bo Ryan. That means tweaks here and there, perhaps to create better flow in what has been a stagnant offense of late. Gard has closed practices for the next week as he works though any opening changes on his watch.
The players, Gard said, have been "absolutely terrific" since the initial shock of Ryan's announcement, which came after a 64-49 win on Dec. Gard, through his first week on the job, has displayed a forward-looking and even-keeled personality.
The Badgers (7-5) have a young team, with eight freshmen on the roster and no scholarship seniors. Gard, considered one of the top assistant coaches in the country, can draw on personal challenges for perspective. His father died just before the season began in late October following a seven-month battle with brain cancer.
Family is important to Gard, who has three children, ages 7 to 14, with his wife, Michelle.

He joined Ryan in 1993 at Wisconsin-Platteville, where the team won three Division III national titles during Ryan's tenure. It is of little surprise that Ryan has checked in on Gard through text messages and phone calls. Laurie Hug, Vikye Swanson and Melinda Wolff each won multiple medals recently competing in the Masters Swimming Nationals in Greensboro, NC.

He'll handle players perhaps a little differently than the gruff but personable Ryan, who left the Badgers after 14-plus seasons. It is a little less time in the spotlight for players who have had to endure unexpected unrest while also having to study for final exams.
No longer will players have to wonder when Ryan would go after the coaching lifer had wavered for months on a timeline.
Having worked with Ryan for two decades, he thanks his former boss for helping him to get ready to handle more responsibility.

After Wednesday's nonconference finale against Green Bay, Wisconsin faces challenges early in the Big Ten schedule, with home games against ranked schools Purdue, Maryland and Michigan State by mid-January.
Ryan cited what Gard was going through at home as a factor in why he delayed a retirement announcement he had thought about making over the summer. She has started replacing the dated family pictures in his old office for more up-to-date photos for his new digs. Gard would follow Ryan to Division I Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 1999, and finally to the state system's flagship campus in Madison in 2001. Gard said his former boss has said he can call anytime with any questions, and they spoke on Tuesday morning.
His award-winning humor column "Outta Leftfield" has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association, the Suburban Newspapers of America and the Philadelphia Press Association. Gard, the longtime assistant, makes his debut on Wednesday as the Badgers' interim head coach when Wisconsin hosts Green Bay.
