Earlier this month Wisconsin’s Josh Gasser and Duje Dukan completed their college basketball careers, as they were members of teams that reached the Final Four in each of the last two seasons and won the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles in 2014-15. Both were picked for a special honor this weekend, as they were named the honorary coaches for the football team’s spring game.

From a wardrobe standpoint both took the occasion “seriously,” with Gasser’s outfit being inspired by New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and Dukan paying homage to former Wisconsin head coach (and current athletic director) Barry Alvarez with the red sweater vest.

Unfortunately for Dukan there was no leftover “coaching” magic in the vest, as his team fell 35-7. And for Gasser, the victory was capped by a celebratory Gatorade bath in the game’s final minute.

You cruise to a win in your coaching debut, you get a Gatorade Bath. Just ask @JPGasser21!
