From 1987–1988, Ludwig was the receivers coach at Portland State. From 1989–1991, Ludwig was the quarterback and receiver coach at Idaho State. In 1992, Ludwig came to Utah to be the Graduate assistant for the defense. 1993–1994 saw Ludwig at Augustana College (South Dakota) as the offensive coordinator. 1995–1996 he was the quarterback coach at Boise State. In 1997 Ludwig was at California Polytechnic State University as offensive coordinator and quarterback coach, which is a role he would retain at some of the other programs he would be at over the years. From 1998–2001, Ludwig was in Fresno State, where he was a finalist for the Broyles Award in 2001. From 2002 to 2004, Ludwig was the offensive coordinator at Oregon. After some difficult years, Ludwig was hired by close personal friend and newly named Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham for the 2005 season. Following the 2009 Sugar Bowl, Ludwig accepted the offensive coordinator position at Kansas State,[1] but two months later he was hired to be the offensive coordinator for the California Golden Bears for the 2009 season.[2] In 2011, Ludwig was hired by new San Diego State coach Rocky Long to be offensive coordinator for the Aztecs.[3] Ludwig was hired to be the offensive coordinator for the Wisconsin Badgers for the 2013 season.
