Madison, Wis. -

Wisconsin Men's Track and Field Head Coach Ed Nuttycombe announced his retirement friday. 

“I just feel the time is right,” Nuttycombe said. “There is probably never a ‘good time’ to walk away from something that has meant so much to you for so long, but I’m excited about what the future holds for me and my family.”

 “Ed’s career is unparalleled,” UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez said. “The success is obvious when you look at the numbers, but the way he succeeded with integrity and touched so many people across his program and his sport is what speaks volumes about the job he did as a head coach."

In 30 years, Nuttycombe's teams won 26 Big Ten Championships, a conference record for head coaches across all sports. For his efforts, Nuttycombe was named Big Ten Coach of the Year 22 times. 

Nuttycombe led the Badgers to a 2007 NCAA National Championship.
