Former Boise State Defensive coach Justin Wilcox is the new Wisconsin Badgers’ defensive coordinator.
The son of the NFL Hall of Famer will take over one of the toughest defenses in the nation and was introduced on Monday as a Badger.
Wilcox takes over for Dave Aranda, who left Wisconsin after three seasons to take the same position at SEC power LSU.
Aranda was a defensive line coach and coordinator at Hawaii when Wilcox was Boise State's defensive coordinator. The Broncos went 13-0 and beat Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime in a memorable Fiesta Bowl in the 2006 season.
Wilcox also spent two seasons as the coordinator at Tennessee, and another two at Washington, and then he ran into the problems at Southern California and their head coach’s issues.
