Wisconsin is close to competing its football coaching staff with the hiring of a new tight ends coach.

One of the first orders of business for new Wisconsin football head coach Gary Andersen was locking down some solid assistant coaches. It appears that Andersen is close to rounding out his staff, and has reportedly hired a new tight ends coach.

According to FootballScoop.com, Andersen will hire former Auburn tight ends coach Jay Boulware. Boulware also was the special teams coordinator under head coach Gene Chizik, who was fired after a disappointing 3-9 season.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus has confirmed the report that Boulware has been hired by Wisconsin.

Boulware and Andersen are familiar with each other, as they worked together on the same staff at Utah in 2005 and 2006. Boulware coached tight ends and special teams with the Utes.

Boulware also has experience coaching running backs at Stanford and Iowa State, and tight ends and offensive line at Northern Illinois.

With Boulware in the fold, the only opening left to fill on the Wisconsin coaching staff is wide receivers coach. Potrykus reports that Wisconsin has targeted Aaron Roderick, the wide receivers coach at Utah.
