Wisconsin will have a new starting quarterback for at least the first portion of the abbreviated 2020 season.
According to a release by the University of Wisconsin, Badgers quarterback Jack Coan had a successful surgery on his injured foot, but will be out indefinitely. Here is the full note:
Wisconsin senior quarterback Jack Coan underwent successful surgery on his right foot Tuesday and will be out indefinitely.
Coan suffered the non-contact injury during practice Saturday.
In his first full season as the Badgers’ starter in 2019, the Sayville, N.Y., native completed a school-record 236 passes for 2,727 yards – the third-highest single-season total in UW history – with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions.
He was named last week a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy and has been placed on preseason watch lists for the Maxwell Award, Manning Award, Davey O’Brien Award and Unitas Golden Arm Award.
