Paul Chryst’s right hand man Joe Rudolph is officially leaving the program to join Brent Pry’s coaching staff at Virginia Tech.

It’s expected that he’s going to be coaching the offensive line, while also assuming additional responsibilities for the Hokies.

No matter what way you slice it this is a big loss for the badgers. Joe Rudolph has been Wisconsin’s offensive line coach since he took over the program in 2015 – and a damn good one at that.

Since 2015, Wisconsin has had some of the most successful offensive lines and dominant running games in the entire nation.

Wisconsin’s rushing attack ranked top 25 in four of the last five season’s – a testament to the impressive job Rudolph did with UW’s offensive lines.

Joe Rudolph also served as Associate head coach/offensive coordinator along with offensive line coach while coaching for the Badgers.

Joe Rudolph’s presence on the recruiting trails will also be sorely missed – everyone in Badger nation wishes him well.
