Tulane loses defensive assistant

Tulane defensive assistant Greg Jackson has left the Green Wave to become an assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin.

Jackson, who had been with the Green Wave since 2007, coached linebackers, safeties and the kickoff game during his time at Tulane.

“Greg is a very talented and energetic coach who worked very hard for our programs during his three seasons at Tulane,” head coach Bob Toledo said in a statement released by the school. “We wish him the best of luck at Wisconsin.”

The pass defense was one of the lone bright spots for the Green Wave last season, ranking 57th in the country with 218 yards allowed per game. The group also had 14 interceptions last season.
