MADISON, Wis. -

Barry Alvarez will earn $118,500 for returning to the sidelines to coach Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl.

And if Wisconsin wins the New Year's Day game against Stanford, Alvarez will get a $50,000 bonus.

The executive committee of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents on Tuesday agreed to the terms following the surprise departure last week of head football coach Bret Bielema to coach at the University of Arkansas.

Alvarez currently works as UW's athletic director but was head coach from 1990 through 2005, a time when he won three Rose Bowl titles.

Money to pay for Alvarez's return to coach the game on New Year's Day comes out of Bielema's $1 million contract buy-out to be paid by Arkansas.
