Andy Ludwig to be named Badgers' offensive coordinator

Ludwig's experience at Utah will help him here. - Deseret News

The former San Diego State offensive coordinator looks to make a new home in Madison.

It was said that Gary Andersen is someone who would look for familiarity in the coaches that he hires. And today? It seems to have helped him hire a new offensive coordinator.

Andy Ludwig, last at San Diego State, will be named the offensive coordinator for the Badgers. Ludwig's been somewhat well-traveled up and down the western side of America. He has made stops at Fresno State, Oregon, Cal, and Utah before he landed at San Diego State.

At Utah he ran the offense that coincided with Gary Andersen's spectacular defense that allowed the Utes to go to Utah and swaggerjack the Crimson Tide with a Sugar Bowl victory. He was also the offensive coordinator that helped develop two quarterbacks into number one picks in Alex Smith and David Carr.

And before you think of him as some sort of passing-spread apostle, he spent this year coordinating an offense with the 12th-most rushing attempts nationally and using two running backs on a regular basis in Adam Muema and Walter Kazee.
