MADISON (WKOW) -- The Badgers are losing their running backs coach and recruiting coordinator to the NFL. Thomas Hammock has decided to accept a position with the Baltimore Ravens. Head coach Gary Andersen confirmed the news at his signing day press conference.
"He's meant a lot to Wisconsin. And let me just say this: Wisconsin means a lot to Thomas Hammock, and it always will. As he moves forward this is something that Thomas has wanted for a long time. Some people want to coach professional football. It's been a driving force of his for quite a few years, and it's where he sees the best spot for him and his family, which I have the utmost respect for, the decision that he has to make.
It all comes with a little bit of difficulty, but we'll move on. We'll be just fine. And he'll move on, and he'll be just fine. I think I have a good friend in Thomas Hammock and a guy that I can trust, and I believe many coaches on our staff feel the exact same way. He's grateful of Wisconsin for the opportunity."
Hammock coached the Badger running backs for three seasons.
