Wodajo brings a wealth of experience to the Badgers, having served as special assistant to the head coach at Northern Kentucky. In this role, he was involved in various aspects of the program, including recruiting, scouting, and player development. His expertise will undoubtedly be an asset to the Wisconsin coaching staff.

“We are excited to welcome Isaac Wodajo to our staff, and having him in this position makes Wisconsin basketball stronger,” Gard said. “Since the offseason began, I have worked to evaluate the changes in college athletics while making sure that the makeup of our staff best fits the various needs of our program. Isaac has a standout work ethic and he has gained invaluable experience at a variety of schools in a number of areas of the game – coaching, operations, scouting, and recruiting – making him an excellent fit for our program.”

Prior to his stint at Northern Kentucky, Wodajo had a successful tenure as head coach at Division I JUCO Wabash Valley College, where he led the team to a 17-13 record and wins in seven of their last nine games. His experience in developing players and recruiting top talent will be invaluable to the Badgers.

“I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to join Coach Gard and his elite staff at Wisconsin,” Wodajo said. “Growing up in Milwaukee, I have developed great respect for Wisconsin basketball while watching this program consistently compete for Big Ten championships and play in the NCAA tournament, all while developing standout student-athletes.”
