Assistant Coaches: Apply Within


It is officially basketball season for me but that does not mean I have to stop talking about football. HCBS’s attention is now focused on the search for assistant coaches and coordinators.


It seems as if the early names that are surfacing, from the Athletic Department side, have ties to either the Nehlen or ARR eras. While some of the guys being mentioned are accomplished we need to peak outside those with ties to the school.


While Dunlap may be "respected" in the coaching community to me that is like my mother talking about a girl as having a "great personality." You know when you finally meet her that she is going to be ugly and fat, with the personality of a dog in heat.The names I like are not original by any means but they are very sexy.

First, I would make Herb Hand Associate Head Coach/Recruiting Coordinator. He got screwed over with Graham brought in Gus Malzahn and would be very willing to listen to what WVU has to say.

Then I would give the young men at Appalachian State a call. Both Scott Satterfield and Shawn Elliot would give the staff an infusion of youth and new blood it needs. While they are both Appy State alums, I would bet they would jump at the opportunity to coach for a national championship at the FBS level.

Next, bring in David Lockwood from UK as the secondary coach. He has built some recruiting ties in the south while working at UK and has some great ties in Big 11 country while working for the Golden Gophers.

Finally, why not take a shot at Mr. Mike Locksley from Illinois. I know I’m dreaming but would it hurt to give him a call to gauge his interest on becoming our offensive coordinator. Patrick White, Noel Devine, and Reynaud would peak a lot of offensive coaches interest.

As I said, none of the names are original but these are my guys.
