Gary Andersen announces UW football coaching staff

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- New Wisconsin football head coach Gary Andersen announced Thursday that he will be bringing in five new assistant coaches to join current UW staffers Thomas Hammock and Ben Strickland. 

The new coaches are offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Andy Ludwig, defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, secondary coach Bill Busch, defensive line coach Chad Kauha'aha'a and offensive line coach T.J. Woods. Hammock will continue to coach running backs while Strickland will remain and coach in the secondary.

"I am excited by the staff we have been able to assemble," Andersen said. "They are quality coaches who bring the experience and philosophies that will enable us to continue playing great offense and defense at Wisconsin. They are also individuals who take care of kids first and will coach them in the right way.

"I have previously worked with the five coaches we are bringing in and I have gotten to know Thomas and Ben in the last few weeks so that familiarity will be beneficial. Both on offense and defense, these coaches have shown a lot of flexibility within their systems, and their main goal is to get the best 11 players on the field and build around their strengths. Our style on offense will be very familiar to Wisconsin fans while on defense I am confident that we can continue the great tradition of tough and physical units that has been established here."
