Budmayr Elevated To Receivers Coach

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Jon Budmayr has been elevated to University of Iowa wide receivers coach after serving as the senior special assistant to the head coach in 2023 and an offensive analyst in 2022. Moon Family Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz made the announcement on Wednesday.

“Jon is an excellent coach and a perfect fit for this position,” said Ferentz. “He has a wealth of knowledge and a familiarity with our program that make him a natural to take this role.”

“My wife and I are very appreciative to have the opportunity to be at Iowa,” Budmayr said. “I have so much respect for Coach Ferentz and the program he’s built over many years. I’m excited to work for him and alongside the great people on our staff. I’m also very appreciative of the opportunity to work with an incredible group of student athletes and help them develop on and off the field.”

Budmayr joined the Iowa staff from Colorado State, where he served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2021. Prior to that, Budmayr spent six seasons at Wisconsin, including the final three as quarterbacks coach. Under Budmayr’s direction, Badger quarterbacks set Wisconsin program records, including a school-record 236 completions by Jack Coan in 2019. Coan’s 2019 season also included the third-most passing yards in a season in Wisconsin history (2,727), while his 69.6 percent completion rate also ranked third in school history and was No. 7 nationally that year.

A native of Woodstock, Illinois, Budmayr earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Wisconsin in 2013. He and his wife, Kaitlyn, have a daughter, Sienna, and a son, Jack.
