Boulware Bolts From Wisconsin
Boulware goes Bollman and decides that he'd rather help Stoops by coaching TEs and special teams rather than rebuild the Badgers. No huge shame in losing out on a coach to Norman, but still a blow to a program that needs some consistency after the Bielema Betrayal. Also note that the Oklahoma press release says nothing about his stop in Madison.
Here's more from the Oklahoman:
NORMAN — Nearly a week before spring practices begin, Bob Stoops completed his 2013-14 Oklahoma staff with Friday's announcement that Jay Boulware will coach tight ends and special teams.
Boulware spent the last four seasons in the same position at Auburn, and comes to Oklahoma after a short stint at Wisconsin, where he was hired in January.
“Jay owns an impressive track record as both a coach and recruiter,” Stoops said in a statement. “He possesses a wide range of coaching experience, competing in some of the nation's toughest conferences.”
Boulware, 40, was born in Oklahoma City and was a Texas offensive lineman in the early 1990s. His coaching career began at his alma mater as a graduate assistant.
He's also coached at Northern Illinois, Arizona, Stanford, Utah and Iowa State. He followed head coach Gene Chizik from Iowa State to Auburn, where he was part of the Tigers' 2010 undefeated, national championship squad.
