Associate head coach Lamont Paris, who just completed his seventh season at Wisconsin, has left the Badgers to take over the head coaching job at Chattanooga.

An attractive job that is sure to bring in a number of candidates, takes a look at some coaches who could replace Paris and join Howard Moore and Joe Krabbenhoft on UW's bench.

Rob Jeter is probably the most popular name floating around just hours after Paris' departure. The former assistant under Bo Ryan at Wisconsin (2001-'05) compiled a 185-170 overall record in his 11 seasons at UWM, but was fired last year with one year left on his contract.
