Report: Badgers alum Ross Kolodziej to join staff


WTMJ Radio's Greg Matzek has reported that former Badger and New York Giants defensive tackle Ross Kolodziej will be leaving his position as Pitt's strength and conditioning coach for the same position at Wisconsin. Kolodziej still holds weight room and pro day records at Wisconsin. He would replace Evan Simon, who left to join Gary Andersen at Oregon State.

And if the first half of the 140 characters aren't interesting enough, Matzek reports that Inoke Breckterfield -- instead of Matt House -- will be joining the Badgers to coach the defensive line. Breckterfield was the position coach of Aaron Donald in college, developing him into a first-round pick that had nine sacks as a rookie for the St. Louis Rams.
