Badgers Coaching Carousel: Wednesday, Jan. 18

With the announcement of Matt Canada as the Badgers' new offensive coordinator, Bret Bielema needs to fill three more coaching positions to round out his staff for 2012. With Canada assuming control of the offense and Zach Azzanni coming in to coach the wide receivers, the Badgers are still looking to hire coaches to manage the linebackers, offensive line, and tight ends. Keep checking B5Q for the latest coaching news.

6:25 PM: Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal tweeted that despite rumors of Andy Buh coming in to coach the linebackers, Bielema will probably officially name that position and fill the tight ends position in early February.

That means the Badgers might still announce their new offensive line coach in the near future. Mulhern previously reported that Bielema and Canada would meet today to try and finalize a line coach.

1:31 PM: Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting Buh is set to join the Badgers' staff, according to a source close to the program. Still no official word from the Athletic Department.

12:00 AM: FootballScoop.com is reporting that Nevada defensive coordinator Andy Buh will be named linebackers coach at Wisconsin. Buh has spent the last two years as Nevada's defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, after returning to his alma mater in 2010 after three years at Stanford.

In addition, Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal tweeted Tuesday that Bielema and Canada will go over a list of potential offensive line coaches today in the hopes of finalizing their decision. That suggests an announcement will come sooner rather than later, but no real potential candidates have emerged in leaks to the media.
