Default Wisconsin fires offensive line coach after Oregon State loss

Quote:
Through two games this season, it's hard being an assistant coach.

Wisconsin confirmed that offensive line coach Mike Markuson was out following the Badgers 10-7 loss to Oregon State last week.

During the game, the Badgers managed just 35 net rushing yards on 23 attempts and quarterback Danny O'Brien was sacked three times.

Markuson, who was hired in the offseason coached offensive lines at Arkansas and Mississippi for 14 years and coached six All-Americans since 2003, including Michael Oher, who was made famous in the movie "The Blindside."

But that success hasn't translated to the Big Ten and Wisconsin's offensive line, which was one of its strong suits a year ago, has been relatively average. And running back Montee Ball, a Heisman finalist a year ago, has had little space to work his magic.

Bart Miller, who works as the quality control coach on offense and helps with the offensive line, will take over the line full time.

Markuson isn't the first assistant coach to find himself unemployed early in the season. Last week, Houston offensive coordinator Mike Nesbitt "resigned" after the Cougars were held to 13 points in their season opener against Texas State.

Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said he understood the ramifications of firing a coach so early in the season.

"I am a person that realizes when I hire and when I relieve people of opportunities, it affects them forever," Bielema said.

"Panic is for the outside world. Reality is what I live with."

yea, Bielema sure likes to make himself look bad.

I get the sense that you don't like Bielema. I don't know... Just call it a hunch.

I had no opinion of him one way or the other until the last two weeks.

He is an idiot. Thinking he could strike twice with bringing in a qb from the ACC for one year was stupid in itself. Firing a guy you just hired in the off season after a slow start is also another mark of stupidity. I hope they have a losing season so this clown gets exposed for the below average coach he truly is.

Sounds like something Walter White would say.
