Stoops did not comment on what role Eric Wolford would assume with the staff. Wolford joined the Wildcat staff three years ago to coach tackles and tight ends but assumed the responsibility of coaching the entire offensive line when then-interior line coach John Peterson took a job with Ohio State shortly after that first spring practice.
Bedenbaugh spent the past two seasons coaching the offensive line for Texas Tech and was that team's running backs coach prior to that.
"I'm really excited to get started," Bedenbaugh said. "I know Coach Stoops has an excellent defense here and I really want to help get the offense on track and help win some championships. I've been around Coach Dykes for a long time, and I know what his expectations are for the offense we want at Arizona. It's an exciting time to be here."
Bedenbaugh's hiring leave one current coaching vacancy as well as the position vacated by recruiting coordinator Dan Berezowitz's, who took a similar position with Minnesota.
It is believed that Director of Football Operations Erick Harper will assume Berezowitz's duties until a replacement can be found.
