The departure of Matt Simon last month left the Bulls in need of a running backs coach. Simon was a long time member of the staff, going back to the Jeff Quinn era. He took a job as the offensive coordinator at Delaware.
The Bulls, rather than hiring a running backs coach hired Jim Zebrowski, formerly of Minnesota, as a quarterbacks coach. Football Scoop is also saying that UB offensive coordinator Andy Kotelnicki will coach the running backs.
Zebrowski was a member of Jerry Kills staff at both NIU and Minnesota. Over the course of 6 years he developed quarterbacks.
The connection to Leipold comes from being the offensive coordinator quarterback coach at Wisconsin-Whitewater for three seasons.
Zebrowski was named the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year and the FootballScoop.com Division III Coordinator of the Year in 2009.
