Andersen adds Josh Oglesby to football staff

GARY ANDERSEN has added former standout Wisconsin offensive lineman Josh Oglesby to his football staff as an offensive quality control coach. Oglesby arrives at Oregon State after serving as a graduate assistant at Wisconsin under Andersen since February 2013. With the Badgers, Oglesby worked with the offensive tackles, tight ends, specialists and with the scout teams.

Josh Oglesby is a tremendous young man with great football knowledge that will pay dividends for our current student-athletes both on and off the field,” Gary Andersen said. “We are excited to welcome him to Beaver Nation.”

Oglesby was a four-year letterman offensive tackle for Wisconsin from 2007-11, starting three years and redshirting as a true freshman. He was a consensus All-Big Ten Conference selection as a senior and helped the Badgers to two division titles.

During his playing career, the Badgers played in five bowl games, including making two appearances in the Rose Bowl. He also was a member of the Badgers’ coaching staff for two bowl games.

The Milwaukee, Wisc., native twice was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List, signifying the nation’s top interior lineman, and was a preseason All-American. He also participated in the NFL Combine and was a free agent signee of the Washington Redskins, but was forced to retire due to injury.

Oglesby is a 2011 graduate of Wisconsin with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and is currently pursuing a master’s degree from Wisconsin in educational leadership and policy analysis.

He joins a quality control coaching staff in Corvallis that includes former Oregon State standouts Kevin Cummings, Lyle Moevao, Mitch Singler and Dorian Smith, former Morningside College tight end Nick Schindler, and U.S. Army veteran Grant Schadeberg.
