He moved to the college ranks in 1979 when he became the linebacker coach at the University of Iowa. Off the field, Alvarez has served as the athletics director at Wisconsin since 2004. In 2006, Alvarez authored the book “Don’t Flinch.” A bronze statue featuring Alvarez’s likeness was unveiled in 2006 and can be found in the Kellner Plaza area of Camp Randall Stadium.
