First of all, Bob Bostad will be the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Obviously, Paul Chryst will still make a lot of the play calls, but it's great to have Bostad continue to coach the offensive line since he's considered one of the better offensive line coaches in the country.
Interestingly, Joe Rudolph, who was the tight end coach and recruiting coordinator at Wisconsin, will be the assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach.
As we already knew Dave Huxtable will be the defensive coordinator and Chris Haering will be the linebackers coach.
The new tight ends coach is Jim Hueber. Not sure I feel about this one. Hueber has a long track record as an offensive line coach, especially at Wisconsin in the past where of course he worked with Chryst. His last job was two years ago when he was the assistant offensive line coach for the Minnesota Vikings. While having a highly experienced coach like Hueber slumming as the tight end coach sounds good from a coaching aspect, he's also in his 60s and I'm not sure what kind of an impact he's going to have as a recruiter. That would have been a good spot to land a hot, young assistant who wants to make his bones in recruiting. Is somebody like Adam Breneman going to get excited to play for a guy in his 60s? I don't know about that.
The new strength and conditioning coach is Todd Rice, who most recently spent the last five years at NC State, where he followed Tom O'Brien from Boston College. Before that, he was the head of strength and conditioning at California and Rice. Rice played at Wisconsin-Platteville where the head coach was Chryst's dad.
