Arizona Football officially announced the return of all-time Wildcat Tedy Bruschi to the program on Monday as a Senior Advisor to the Head Football Coach.
The College Football Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion is the latest of many Arizona Football alumni hires in the newly-founded Jedd Fisch era.
In addition to Bruschi, Wildcat heroes of years past that have been hired by Fisch include Ricky Hunley, Chuck Cecil, and Brandon Sanders.
When Fisch was initially brought on as Arizona’s newest head football coach, many fans and alumni raised hell on social media due to the questionable process in which he was hired.
However, since day one, Fisch has proved to embrace Arizona’s alumni and tradition.
Fisch, who was the Quarterbacks Coach for the New England Patriots before he was hired at Arizona, met with Bruschi in Massachusetts only days after he was hired to lead the program.
"I am very excited to re-establish my connection to the Arizona Football program," Bruschi said in a press release from Arizona Athletics.
Bruschi played in an era when staying four years in college football was the norm - even if you happened to be really good.
In his four years at Arizona as a player, Bruschi was a two-time consensus All-American and Pac-10 Defensive Player of the year.
The 13-year NFL veteran racked up over 1,000 tackles in his professional career with the New England Patriots.
In recent years, Arizona Football has wandered far from its reign as one of the most feared programs in the Pac-10 under Dick Tomey.
With all of the additions Fisch had already made before this and now Tedy Bruschi joining the staff as the cherry on top, Tucson could finally have a football product to be excited about again.
