Badgers Coaching Carousel: Friday, Jan. 20

It's Friday, Jan. 20, and the Badgers are still looking to hire coaches for the offensive line, tight ends, linebackers, and safeties. With National Signing Day approaching quickly as well, it's important for the Badgers to find good coaches who can also keep the small 2012 recruiting class in the fold. Stay tuned to B5Q for the latest coaching news, as this page will be updated as information becomes available.

3:07 PM: Tom Mulhern of the Wisconsin State Journal tweeted that the Badgers might have found their next offensive line coach:

Mike Markuson spent the last 18 years with Houston Nutt, including stops at both Arkansas and Ole Miss, where he coached the offensive line. He was eventually promoted to co-offensive coordinator in 2010. He also spent a year as a graduate assistant at Notre Dame, where he worked with now-Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez.

If Mulhern's scoop turns out to be correct, this looks like a solid-to-great hire for the Badgers. Markuson has a lot of experience coaching the offensive line, and would bring extra credibility to offensive line recruits who may be looking elsewhere after the departure of Bob Bostad. Markuson also coached now-Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Michael Oher, who's personal story gained prominence with the release of the 2009 movie "The Blind Side."
