WATCH: Wisconsin's players address the media after Paul Chryst's firing




 

On Wednesday morning, Wisconsin's leaders had a chance to address the media for the first time since the firing of head coach Paul Chryst.

As was apparent on Twitter Sunday night, the news was an emotional shock to everyone in the Badger family. Many players publicly supported Coach Chryst after the decision was made, and made sure to let everyone know how much he meant to them.

Badger upperclassmen such as Keeanu Benton, Graham Mertz, and Nick Herbig address the media on Wednesday and talked through what they are going through as a team.
