A pissed-off Gary Andersen lost a member of his Wisconsin staff a couple of days ago, but the first-year Badgers head coach has moved to expeditiously fill the vacancy.
UW announced Tuesday that Jeff Genyk has been hired as both tight ends coach and special teams coordinator. Genyk will replace Jay Boulware, who was hired by Andersen in January but left for Oklahoma a month or so later.
“We’re very excited to have Jeff, his wife, Lisa, and their two children, Jake and McKenna, become a part of the Badger family,” Andersen said. “He’s been a tight ends coach and special teams coordinator at the BCS level, as well as having head coach experience, so that made him a very attractive candidate. I’m extremely pleased we were able to get a tremendous coach like Jeff, especially given the timing of this transition.”
Genyk spent the past three seasons as an assistant at Cal. Genyk was also just hired recently as an assistant at Nevada.
