Josh Heupel adding another former UCF coach to his Tennessee support staff
Just when you thought the UCF to Tennessee pipeline was closing, the Volunteers add another familiar face to Josh Heupel’s Volunteer program.
Tennessee’s newest addition from UCF comes with the expected hire of Jacob Bronowski as a special teams analyst on Rocky Top. News of Bronowksi’s move to Tennessee was first reported by John Brice of FootballScoop.
Bronowski served in the same role for Heupel’s UCF program in 2020 after previously serving as the special teams coordinator/tight ends coach at Robert Morris.
Here is Jacob Bronowski’s bio from the UCF team site:
