I know some people are happy with all of this NIL and transfer shit, but here we are. This absolutely sucks. That UW was even in this thing makes me feel kinda dirty.
The whole thing is just sad.

Things are changing again... Sounds like the money is not the big issue, as was reported by Rivals.

The kid wants to be Russell Wilson.

UW made some staff announcements yesterday, and it looks great.

We know about Engram as the new OC, but we now know he will also coach tight ends, which he coached in Baltimore.

UW's TE coach, Mickey Turner, will now be director of recruiting. I love this move, for many reasons. This guy knows how to connect with kids, and allows Engram to step in at TE.

Bob Bostad was formally announced as the new OL coach. Not a well kept secret. Best OL coach UW has ever had, and it's not close.

Bill Sheridan was introduced as the ILB coach, replacing Bostad in that role. Great hire, and likely a stop gap given his age and such. Chris Orr will likely be groomed as his replacement in 3-4 years (only my opinion).

UW has posted another job opening for an offensive coach.

This means RB coach Gary Brown can no longer coach. He's been battling health issues and is a cancer patient.

Too bad. I really liked him. Hopefully they can keep him on staff to help with recruiting.

2022 UW coaching staff:

HC: Paul Chryst

OC/QB: Bobby Engram*
DC/S: Jim Leonhard

OL/RGC: Bob Bostad**
RB: Al Johnson*
WR: Alvis Whitted
TE: Chris Haering**

DL: Ross Kolodziej
ILB: Bill Sheridan*
OLB: Bobby April
CB: Hank Poteat

* New hire
** New role

Special teams will be by committee.

The only thing I don't like here is retaining Haering (also the only one on staff who never played or coached in the NFL). 

Everything else is good.

Recruiting staff is led by Mickey Turner**, and it is rapidly growing.

OL Depth Chart:

LT: Jack Nelson, Nolan Rucci
LG: Tyler Beach, Trey Wedig
C: Joe Tippmann, Cormac Sampson
RG: Michael Furtney, Tanner Bortoloini
RT: Logan Brown, Riley Mahlman

I know how Bostad works. The best 5 will be on the field, period. UW generally only recruits tackles, so this is all plug and play.

Lots of STARZ in the above list.

He's saying the right things. From Badger 247:


When the Wisconsin men's basketball team hosted rival Minnesota on Jan. 30, many fans in the crowd of 17,287 were focused on a storyline encircling the football program.

Those people craved Caleb Williams, the former Oklahoma star quarterback who entered the transfer portal after the 2021 season.

The story stemmed from multiple reports, including one from 247Sports, indicating that there was mutual interest between UW and Williams. But the craze reached truly preposterous levels and hit somewhat of a boiling point that Sunday afternoon at the Kohl Center. Some fans chanted for Williams. Others held paper signs, one of them saying, "I'll give my tuition $ to Caleb Williams."
Two days later, Williams brought everyone back down to earth. He chose USC, the expected destination, where he reunited with former Sooners coach Lincoln Riley. In Wisconsin, the attention went back to Graham Mertz, who enters his third season as the Badgers' starter with plenty to prove after an underwhelming sophomore campaign.
"It's a coach's job to find the best player," Mertz said Monday when asked about the Williams rumors. "What am I going to say? 'Oh, no, I deserve this.' I don't deserve everything. I have to prove it every day. I have to prove it's my job. That's what I am going to do. It's what I've always done."


...

Mertz revisited the film from each game multiple times this offseason, dissecting his turnovers and performances with head coach Paul Chryst, graduate assistant Keller Chryst and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Bobby Engram. Mertz pulled different details out of each session.

"I think it just comes down to the details," Mertz said. "You go through the tape, and it's the little things. It's the footwork, the ball being an inch out (on the handoff) against Penn State) and it hits the fullback. For me, it's the little details we have to emphasize every day and just hone in on the ball security as a unit."
