Zach Azzanni

Wide Receivers, Passing Game Coordinator, Tennessee Volunteers

Zach Azzanni brings an emphasis on catching passes to the Volunteers.

Credited with playing a major role in Tennessee’s near instantaneous recruiting success under coach Butch Jones, Azzanni’s expertise at the wide receiver position as a former player at Central Michigan followed him to coaching stops at his alma-mater, Valparaiso, Bowling Green, Florida, Western Kentucky and Wisconsin before the Volunteers came calling in 2013.
