ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported on Sunday that Wisconsin football has hired a special teams coordinator/ OLB coach. The Badgers hired the coach away from a Division II program.

Matt Mitchell has spent the last 12 years with Grand Valley State as head coach of its football program. Mitchell is reportedly going to be the next special teams coordinator/ OLB coach in Madison. This move comes shortly after Colin Hitschler was already announced as the safeties and special teams coach.

Mitchell compiled a 117-31 record in 12 seasons with Grand Valley State. Mitchell led the Lakers to a 12-1 record this past season.

Luke Fickell’s staff also added Paul Haynes as cornerbacks coach and Greg Scruggs as defensive line coach recently.

The main pieces of Fickell’s staff will include Phil Longo as offensive coordinator and Mike Tressel as defensive coordinator. Tressel came over from Cincinnati, while Longo spent the last three seasons at North Carolina.

If the reports are true, Mitchell will be getting his shot at a D-I school.
