Former Ohio State linebacker joins Luke Fickell at Wisconsin

Just a few short months ago, former Ohio State great Luke Fickell was named head football coach at Wisconsin.

Now the Badgers have grabbed another former Buckeye to join the coaching staff:

Tuf Borland. He will be a defensive grad assistant on Fickell’s staff after a short stint in the NFL.

Borland went to high school in Bolingbrook, Illinois, just a little over two hours from Madison.

 Borland also has Badger blood running through his veins as the son of former Wisconsin linebacker Kyle Borland.

 who played at Camp Randall in the early 80s.

Tuf Borland, of course, was a three-time captain at Ohio State,

 a very exclusive club in Buckeye lore.

He and J.T. Barrett are the only two players to have the honor of being a captain for the OSU football team for three years.
