Wisconsin ILB coach resigns amidst NCAA investigation
Wisconsin will be looking for a new assistant coach to add to Paul Chryst’s staff over the summer.
Unfortunately, inside linebackers coach Bill Sheridan is out before even completing one season with the program. Sheridan was hired in February but is reportedly under investigation for violating NCAA rules while at Air Force in 2020.
On Friday, it was announced that Sheridan has resigned from his post:
“While I look forward to presenting my case at a hearing, I am concerned that the NCAA investigation regarding activities that occurred prior to me joining the Wisconsin football staff could be a distraction which could cause harm to the program,” Sheridan said via statement. “As a result, I am submitting my resignation effective immediately.”

Sheridan has a long coaching career across NFL and college positions spanning back to 1981. It will be interesting to see where Wisconsin turns to fill the vacancy at this point in the offseason.
