Engram has been with the Ravens since the 2014 season. He started out as the wide receivers coach, working in that role through 2018. Over the past three seasons, he’s been the team’s tight ends coach.
Chryst and Engram did work together at Pitt. When Chryst was the head coach from 2012-14, Engram was the wide receivers coach for the Panthers from 2012-13.
Engram is familiar with the B1G, playing college football at Penn State. He was a three-time first-team All-B1G selection during his career in the 1990s and was a second-round selection in the 1996 NFL Draft.
Engram went on to have a 14-year career in the NFL, playing with the Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. He ended his professional career with 7,751 yards and 35 touchdowns on 650 receptions.
Wisconsin is coming off a 9-4 season in 2021.
