MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin senior quarterback Jack Coan underwent successful surgery on his right foot Tuesday and will be out indefinitely.

Coan suffered the non-contact injury during practice Saturday.

In his first full season as the Badgers’ starter in 2019, the Sayville, N.Y., native completed a school-record 236 passes for 2,727 yards – the third-highest single-season total in UW history – with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions.

He was named last week a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy and has been placed on preseason watch lists for the Maxwell Award, Manning Award, Davey O’Brien Award and Unitas Golden Arm Award.
