Badgers promote Krabbenhoft to associate head coach

Wisconsin men’s basketball assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft has been promoted to associate head coach, according to an official UW press release Monday.

Krabbenhoft had spent the last seven years with the program as an assistant, being involved in the program’s recruiting efforts.

Joe has been integral to our sustained success as one of the nation’s most consistent programs,” Wisconsin head coach Greg Gard said, via the release. “He continues to check every box you could possibly want in a coach, recruiter, teacher and mentor for our student-athletes. He has a superb understanding of who we are, who we need to be, and what and who makes us successful on and off the court at Wisconsin.”

“I’m really grateful to Coach Gard and Wisconsin athletic department,” Krabbenhoft said via the release. “Wisconsin means so much to me and it has provided me and my family with so many opportunities. It gave me the chance to play, to earn a degree, a job and a place to call home. I want to continue to pay that forward and enhance the lives of our players and give back to our program, the university and this community.”
