Sources: Tennessee adding versatile Bronowski to Heupel's staff

Jacob Bronowski is on the move from Orlando, Florida, to Knoxville, Tennessee.

A former walk-on quarterback at New Mexico still in the early stages of his coaching career, Bronowski is joining Josh Heupel's University of Tennessee staff as a quality control coach.

Bronowski's coaching background gives him experience to help the Vols under the first-year coach Heupel in a variety of elements from previous work at multiple offensive positions and in-depth special teams coaching.

While with Heupel at UCF, Bronowski assisted the Knights' special teams. Yet prior to that at Football Championship Subdivision program Robert Morris, he served as both tight ends coach and special teams coordinator.

In the years since his playing days ended and he first started in coaching at his alma mater, Bronowski worked with the quarterbacks in the Lobos program, the wideouts and also assisted in special teams.

Of note, sources told FootballScoop that Bronowski has climbed his way up through the coaching ranks in the first few years with extensive film work particularly on special teams.

Sources also confirmed to FootballScoop that Carter Blount has been released from the new Tennessee staff. Blount had served as the Vols' special teams quality control analyst under previous head coach Jeremy Pruitt.

Heupel this week formally finalized his on-field staff with the addition Mike Ekeler to coach outside linebackers and serve as special teams coordinator.
