Wilcox introduced at press conference as Badgers new DC

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Justin Wilcox was introduced Monday at a press conference as the Badgers new defensive coordinator. Wilcox appeared with head coach Paul Chryst in front of the media four days after being officially hired. Wilcox replaces Dave Aranda who left UW for the same job at LSU. Wilcox comes to Wisconsin after being let go as USC's defensive coordinator. Wilcox was one of several assistants let go after former USC head coach Steve Sarkisian was fired.

"I'm humbled and excited to be here. They've done a fantastic job, and they've got great coaches on their staff who I look forward to working with. Today was the first chance I had to meet some of the players and kind of my number one goal right now is I have some flash cards, so I got names and places and numbers and I'm learning those guys and getting to know them, because they are the engine that makes it go, and that's priority number one. I'm excited to get to work," Wilcox said.
