Badgers Wire deals with the news that Alex Grinch will coach at Wisconsin

Our friends at Badgers Wire get the Alex Grinch experience. We lived through it for the past two seasons here at Trojans Wire. Now it’s Wisconsin’s turn after Luke Fickell made a shocking decision.

Here’s a snippet from Badgers Wire’s report on Grinch by staff writer Ben Kenney:

“The stats of his defenses are questionable, to say the least. USC’s 2023 group finished 116th in total defense and 118th in scoring defense, that after finishing 106th and 94th respectively in 2022.

“Grinch does have experience as a position coach, though. He was Washington State’s DBs coach from 2015 to 2017 and Ohio State’s safeties coach in 2018 before being a DC from 2019 to 2023.

“He is set to take the role formerly held by Colin Hitschler, who recently left for an assistant job under Kalen DeBoer at Alabama.”

Good luck, Wisconsin. You will need it with Alex Grinch on your coaching staff. A reminder: Wisconsin visits the Los Angeles Coliseum to play USC on September 28.
