Wisconsin OLB coach Tim Tibesar joins Oregon State as defensive coordinator, per report

Wisconsin appears to be the latest program losing an assistant coach to take a job at another school which would be seen as a promotion.

According to a report from Jon McNamara of the Rivals network, Badgers OLB assistant coach Tim Tibesar will be joining Oregon State as the Beavers’ new defensive coordinator.

Tibesar has been an assistant at Wisconsin since 2015 and has had three players under his watch get taken in the NFL draft. During his first three seasons, the Badgers have gone 33-7 overall as a team.

Prior to Wisconsin, Tibesar was most recently a defensive consultant at Northwestern after spending 2013 as a LB coach with the Chicago Bears and the 2012 season as defensive coordinator at Purdue. The Boilermakers led the Big Ten in interceptions, forced fumbles and takeaways that year.

Prior to that, Tibesar spent three seasons with Montreal of the Canadian Football League, winning back-to-back Grey Cup championships as linebackers coach in 2009 and 2010 before serving as defensive coordinator in 2011.

Tibesar joined the Alouettes after spending three seasons at Kansas State. He was also the defensive coordinator at his alma mater, North Dakota, from 2004-05. That followed his three seasons as UND’s ILB coach.
