Kolodziej spent eight seasons with the Badgers, with the last two as their defensive line coach. He is also a Wisconsin alumnus that started for the Badgers as a defensive tackle from 1998-2000. The Steven’s Point, Wis., native will join former Wisconsin coaches Bobby April and Mark D’Onofrio on Stanford’s staff.

It is unfortunate to see a former Badger leaving the program, but hopefully, he can find success and represent Wisconsin well in his time with Stanford.
