University at Buffalo football coach Lance Leipold announced on Monday that Jim Zebrowski has been hired as the Bulls' quarterbacks coach. Zebrowksi brings 25 years of coaching experience to Buffalo. He was the quarterbacks coach at Minnesota from 2011-15
"We're excited to add Jim to the staff," Leipold said. "He is highly regarded and has a proven track record of developing quarterbacks."
Among the athletes Zebrowski will be working with at UB is sophomore Tyree Jackson, who completed 53.1 passes for 1,772 yards, 9 touchdowns with 9 interceptions last season. Jackson also ran for 472 yards and five touchdowns.
Prior Minnesota, Zebrowski was the quarterbacks coach at Northern Illinois in 2010 where he tutored All-Mid-American Conference quarterback Chandler Harnish, an NFL draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts, and Jordan Lynch who was an All-American and a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2013.
This is the second time Zebrowski will serve under Leipold. He was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Wisconsin-Whitewater from 2007-09. In 2004, he was head coach at Division III Lakeland University and led the Muskies to a 28-12 record over four seasons.
Andy Kotelnicki, who previously served as quarterbacks coach, has been reassigned to running backs coach and will remain the team's offensive coordinator.
