Reports: Vols hire WR coach


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Butch Jones finally has a complete coaching staff at Tennessee.

Two separate reports, including one by WATE 6 Sports contributor, cite sources that say Jones has hired Zach Azzanni to coach wide receivers.

The other report is by the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper in Madison, WI. The WSJ says Azzanni will stay with Wisconsin to help coach the Badgers in the Rose Bowl.

The University of Tennessee has yet to confirm the hiring.

Azzanni spent last season as a receivers coach at Wisconsin.

Azzanni was the offensive coordinator at Western Kentucky in 2011, and served as receivers coach under Urban Meyer at Florida in 2010.

He also coached with Jones at Central Michigan

Azzanni fills the final vacancy on Jones' staff.

Tennessee officially announced the hiring of nine football coaching staff members on Thursday-- including offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian and defensive coordinator John Jancek.
