Thought we had our 10 coaches. Who is gone?February 11, 2019 at 3:41 pm #82618
Found it….. Dye not on the WVU official list.February 11, 2019 at 3:53 pm #82622
The WVU page hasn’t been updated since before Dye was confirmed. Dye’s announcement story is still up on WVU’s site, so no reason to assume he isn’t official.
The assumption at this point is that Gerberry won’t be retained, but again, that’s just a deduction based on the fact that there are 10 announced hires still up on WVU’s siteFebruary 11, 2019 at 4:04 pm #82627
I would make that deduction also. But who knows? Anything can happen. Didn’t the WV Lottery guy catch Sasquatch?February 11, 2019 at 4:07 pm #82629
Yep. As we speak, Gerberry came off the official site.February 11, 2019 at 4:10 pm #82630
Pleased with the last 2 hires. Dye and Trickett bring a lot of experience and both can recruit. Trickett is familiar with the program. That’s a plus.February 11, 2019 at 4:21 pm #82635
I liked Dan Gerberry and thought he was a good coach and good recruiter, and if he had been retained, I would have been good with that. (Not that Neal Brown is calling for my opinion.)
That said, I think Travis Trickett is a good hire. Smart, energetic young coach who obviously comes from an incredibly knowledgable family coaching tree. A person can become a good coach without having had a father in the business, but it certainly doesn’t hurt to have football ingrained in you from before you can walk.
Travis wasn’t the athlete Clint was, so he didn’t play after high school, outside of a game as quarterback for WVU’s J.V. team, but just like his younger brother (and also the middle brother, Chance, who is a scout for the L.A. Rams), Travis has been groomed to be a coach since he was a kid.February 11, 2019 at 9:05 pm #82670
I’m good with this hire. First impressions of this staff is that there is a dollop of fire & brimstone in this staff to go along with the bonding, togetherness, and care for the troops that has been espoused. 😉February 11, 2019 at 9:59 pm #82675
We have a number of coaches that have recruiting ties to the south. That’s GREAT……. but we also need ties to the traditional states surrounding WV.
I’m impressed with the quality of coaches Neal has brought in. Lots of young guys with some Coordinator or CoCoordinator experience. Let’s just hope we can keep these guys intact for a number of years. Let’s open our wallets to tie them up.
