Scott Tolzien to join Wisconsin staff

Former Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien will rejoin his alma mater as an analyst, he told the Wisconsin State Journal.

“This is a good way for me to get my feet wet (in coaching) and try it out and see where it goes from there,” Tolzien told the paper. “I don’t want to predetermine anything. I just kind of want to see how it goes and work my hardest, try to be an asset as much as I can. At the end of the year I can go from there.”

Tolzien played quarterback for the Badgers from 2006-10, leading Bucky to a Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl appearance in 2010. He won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as a senior, given to the nation's top senior quarterback.

Tolzien's offensive coordinator at that time was current Badgers head coach Paul Chryst.

He went undrafted in 2011 but lasted in the league for seven seasons, playing for the San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts, starting four career games and appearing in 10. He played for the AAF's Birmingham Iron this spring.
