The Arizona Wildcats held a media day for us Thursday so we could get to know more about their new assistant coaching hires.
Most of them, anyway.
Offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Brennan Carroll and linebacker coach Keith Dudzinski were the only ones not in attendance. Carroll is not in town yet and Dudzinski’s hiring is not official, though several coaches mentioned him by name so we can assume that is basically a done deal.
Anyway, below are the full interviews. Be sure to click on the coaches’ names if you want more info on them. Each coach spoke for about 20 minutes, hitting on their position groups, their past, what they plan to bring to the program, and more.
