Wisconsin assistants speak for the 1st time since hire


After announcing all but one coaching hire so far this offseason the group of assistants hired by Gary Andersen finally got to introduce themselves to the public and the media earlier this week. There were definitely some interesting things said and an aoura of excitement for the new season and the new staff on hand. 

Some may give you quotes and fit it into some sort of concieved narrative, but why do that when we can you give you the coaches in their own words, right? So, enjoy the coaches speaking for themselves to the media ths week. 

Offensive Coordinator – Andy Ludwig:

One thing is for sure, this will be a players coach and he's got enough experience to know what it'll take to get this team to be successful with the players that are on the team

…. more after the jump …. 

Tight Ends Coach/Special Teams – Jay Boulware:


Clearly he's going to have a lot of energy and it seems like he's a very easy going person that also demands the best of his players. 

Offensive Line – TJ Wood

Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers – Dave Aranda:

Defensive Backs/Safeties – Bill Busch:

Busch has experience at the UW and that will only serve to help acclimate the staff to what it means to play football and be a part of the Wisconsin program as they also try and build their own definition of what it means to be a "Wisconsin player."

Defensive Line – Chad Kauha'aha'a: 

Love that he talks about playing tough and with some "swag" and throwing some weight around against this offensive line. If UW is stout on both sides of the ball it'll be really hard to see many teams beating the Badgers.
