WVU Assistant Coach Posts Farewell Message

West Virginia assistant coach Travis Trickett (right) demonstrates a technique to Charles Finley

West Virginia assistant football coach Travis Trickett has posted a goodbye message to his players and fellow coaches:

Trickett is reportedly in line to become the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at USF after serving for three seasons as the tight ends and inside receivers coach at WVU from 2019-21. That was his second stint at WVU, where he began his coaching career as a student assistant (and j.v. quarterback) from 2003-07 before moving on to graduate assistant spots at Alabama (2007) and Florida State (2008-10).

He began his assistant coaching career at Samford where he served as tight end/slot receivers coach in 2011, followed by four years as the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator. He them moved to the same position at Florida Atlantic (2016) and Georgia State (2017-18) before his second run at WVU.

As reported last March by BlueGoldNews.com, Trickett signed a new two-year contract with WVU for the 2021 and 2022 seasons, seeing the second largest raise on the staff. He went from $200,000 in 2020 to $310,000 in 2021, and would have bumped to $330,000 in 2022 had he remained on the staff.

A native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Trickett earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and marketing from West Virginia in 2007 and his master’s degree from Florida State in sports administration in 2009.

In addition to completing its football recruiting class of 2022, WVU will now be in the market for an offensive assistant to replace Trickett, who was also one of the Mountaineers’ most energetic recruiters.

This is the second raid of Neal Brown’s WVU staff by USF. Former Mountaineer assistant Xavier Dye, who served one year at WVU in 2019 as receivers coach, is the tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator for the Bulls.

    Haven’t you heard? Between Parker and Brown, we have the best in College football. (Insert sarcasm).
