LDS College Football Star Named To Packers Staff
(Bevell named off. assistant) Packers (Green Bay Packers Press Release) 7Mar00 S2
Darrel Bevell took Wisconsin to its first Rose Bowl in three decades in 1994.

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN -- Former University of Wisconsin Badgers quarterback and LDS Church member Darrell Bevell has been named offensive assistant/quality control for the NFL's Green Bay Packers, head coach Mike Sherman announced yesterday. Bevell, a returned missionary, is best known for leading the Wisconsin Badgers to victory in the 1994 Rose Bowl.

But instead of going to the NFL as a player following his college days, Bevell chose to coach, starting as passing game coordinator at Westmar University in Lemars, Iowa. After working the 1997 season at Iowa State, he coached the wide receivers at the University of Connecticut for two seasons.

Bevell will assist the offensive coordinator Tom Rossley with the quarterbacks and help assure quality control on the coaching staff. "Darrell's reputation at the University of Wisconsin both as a player and as a person speaks for itself," Sherman said in announcing the appointment. "I like the fact that he is a former Badger and knows what it takes to win championships; having been schooled by Barry Alvarez and his staff is certainly a plus for me. I look forward to seeing him grow into his role as a coach here while being a Packer. It is a great opportunity for him to work with Tom Rossley and the quarterbacks, but even more so a great opportunity for us to add another quality coach to our staff."

Bevell is a native of Yuma, Arizona and spent a year as a redshirt at Northern Arizona before leaving on his mission to Cleveland. He then transferred to Wisconsin in the spring of 1992.
