    That’s newsy!

    Hope these guys can recruit to a Big 12 team in Morgantown.

    Certainly recruiting is going to be a huge key. So far Neal Brown’s announced hires don’t have much recruiting history in West Virginia or the areas around it, so those assistants are going to have to quickly become ingrained in their new territories.

    I’ll be interested on how the co-OC positions will work out.

    It will be very interesting to see how they split up the recruiting areas and who has the strength in FL, GA & Carolinas.  We seem to have had great success recently in GA & Carolinas.  But our bread and butter areas are still PA, OH, MD, VA.  Surrounding states have been good even though PA numbers and quality have been down vs years ago.

    I think it will be very interesting.

    I see Addae and Scott both recruiting in Florida, where they’re from.

    I think we’ll see more kids from Georgia, and definitely more from Alabama and we now have a deep connection to Mississippi junior college coaching.

    We already see offers going out in Kentucky and a push on West Virginia kids. And I see a tweet right now that FIVE STAR Huntington OL DarnellWright will visit WVU. He’s been a Tennessee lean for a long time.

    The new staff is hitting it hard

    Co is a way to give a coach a promotion and title for more money. I have heard Brown will be calling the plays.

    Allen is right. Co-coordinator is a nice title, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that person will be the playcaller. This will be Neal Brown’s offense, and all indications are he will be calling the plays. That was also the case back in the Rich Rodriguez era when Calvin Magee was the co-offensive coordinator, but RichRod called the plays, and in the early Holgorsen years when Shannon Dawson was co-coordinator but Dana called the plays. It wasn’t until Jake Spavital came in two years ago that WVU had a true offensive coordinator, as Holgorsen turned the play calling over to Jake. I full expect this to be Brown’s offense and his play calls. Obviously Chad Scott and Matt Moore, who are going to be the co-offensive coordinators, will have input, but Brown will have the final call. I do expect Vic Koenning to have control of the defense, though. He will be the true defensive coordinator.

    Mark Scott is no longer listed on WVU’s website as a member of its football staff, though he was yesterday. Dan Gerberry is still listed, so does that mean Gerberry is going be retained but Scott is not. All other assistant coaches who had been on Dana Holgorsen’s staff are no longer listed on the website, other than Gerberry. Neal Brown’s recent hires are all listed, other than Al Pogue, who just was officially announced a few moments ago. Pogue is the sixth member of Brown’s staff who has been officially announced, five of them following Brown from Troy. Jahmile Addae has not yet been officially announced, though it appears he will be part of this staff as well. If Addae and Gerberry are hired, Brown would have eight of his 10 assistant coaching slots filled.
