Azzanni to leave Badgers for Tennessee

Wisconsin Badger wide receiver coach Zach Azzanni, has been reported to take a wide receiver coaching position at Tennessee, according to a source close to the Wisconsin football program.

The source says Azzanni will leave the Wisconsin team after the Rose Bowl takes place on January 1.  Nothing is certain yet, as the deal has not been confirmed by Tennessee.

According to Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal, Azzanni has shown interest in remaining at Wisconsin, but Azzanni says it’s not easy to sit and wait for a new head coach.

“If I don’t get an opportunity to stay here, this will be my sixth house in five years,” said Azzanni in an interview.

The search for a new Wisconsin Badger head coach, and now wide receiver coach, continues as the Badgers take on Stanford in the Rose Bowl.
