Wisconsin head football coach Bret Bielema announced today the hiring of Zach Azzanni to coach wide receivers for the Badgers.
The 13-year coaching veteran joins the Badgers staff after serving as the offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Western Kentucky last season. Azzanni has also coached at Florida, Central Michigan, Bowling Green and Valparaiso.
With Azzanni directing the offense, Western Kentucky featured the nation’s No. 2 rusher this season. Bobby Rainey averaged 141.3 rushing yards per game.
Azzanni was hired at Florida following the 2009 regular season and coached in the Gators’ appearance in the 2010 Sugar Bowl in which Tim Tebow ended his career with a personal-best 482 passing yards.
