Ohio State associate coach Strobel leaves Buckeyes for same job at Wisconsin

Mark Strobel has been named the new associate head coach at Wisconsin.

Strobel had previously been in the same role at Ohio State since the summer of 2015.

“[Wisconsin is] where my heart has always been,” Strobel said in a news release.

Strobel fills the void created June 13 when Don Granato left to become an NHL assistant coach with the Chicago Blackhawks.

“It’s a special place, that’s all I can say,” Strobel added. “It’s family to me.”

“He’s a guy you want to be around,” said UW head coach Tony Granato. “Every time you see Mark Strobel, you see a happy, energetic, passionate guy that loves life, loves hockey, loves the Badgers and has always been a big part of our program.

“He’s a phenomenal person, a great coach, who’s going to add a lot to our program. He’s one of those guys you meet one time and you feel like you’ve known him your whole life.”

Strobel, a defenseman, played four seasons for the Badgers from 1991 to 1995.
