Report: Wisconsin OL coach T.J. Woods, DL coach Chad Kauha’aha’a 'certain' to go to Oregon State


According to Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal, Wisconsin offensive line coach T.J. Woods and defensive line coach Chad Kauha’aha’a are "certain" to join Gary Andersen at Oregon State. It's unclear if they would coach for UW in the Outback Bowl vs. Auburn on New Year's Day.

The only official news regarding Andersen's staff at OSU came Monday, when the Beavers announced that Andersen would be retaining wide receivers coach Brent Brennan. Unless Paul Chryst wants to bring Pitt receivers coach Greg Lewis with him to Madison, Chris Beatty's chances of remaining Wisconsin's receivers coach seem to have increased, especially with his recruiting results during two years in Madison.

There's still some time remaining before we get some conclusive news about Wisconsin's next coaching staff, as defensive coordinator Dave Aranda remains in demand and the statuses of coaches like offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig, running backs coach Thomas Brown, safeties coach Bill Busch and tight ends coach Jeff Genyk remain up in the air. There's also cornerbacks coach Ben Strickland, but as a Badger since his playing days, it'd be quite shocking to see him leave for anything less than a significant promotion.
