Far from definite, but one possibility to fill Jake Spavital’s coaching position at WVU apparently is former Mountaineer quarterback Clint Trickett.
Trickett would NOT be West Virginia’s offensive coordinator, but instead would strictly be the team’s quarterback coach. Head coach Dana Holgorsen would resume his duties as WVU’s offensive coordinator in this scenario.
Again this is not 100 percent yet, but it is a possibility that Holgorsen is apparently considering.
After finishing his playing career at West Virginia (2013-14), Trickett began his coaching career as the quarterback coach at East Mississippi Community College for two seasons (2015-16). He moved to Florida Atlantic in 2017, and has spent the past two years coaching the tight ends at FAU.
To add to this rumor, here is new commit Ali Jennings’ interview from today:
Highland Springs WR Ali Jennings is headed to @WVUfootball in the fall, and had plenty of reasons as to why Morgantown is for him. His teammate, LB Christian White, was sold on @HUBISONFOOTBALL after his official visit. @NBC12 @RJXIII @cwh1te_ @gohshsfootball pic.twitter.com/Sn9ErrZYao
