Ash to join Bielema at Arkansas

Wisconsin defensive coordinator Chris Ash is joining former Badger coach

Chris Ash

Bret Bielema at the University of Arkansas.

Ash will stay on and coach the Badgers defense through the Rose Bowl. 

Ash joined UW as defensive backs coach in 2010.  he was promoted to defensive coordinator the following season, after Dave Doeren left to become the head coach at Northern Illinois. 

Ash may be just the first of several coaches leaving Madison.  The Wisconsin State Journal is reporting that defensive line coach Charlie Partridge and linebackers coach Andy Buh are both weighing multiple offers, but haven’t decided what to do.
