WVU beat writer Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette-Mail is reporting changes are in store for the WVU football staff:
Gazette-Mail has learned WVU aims to name Joe Wickline offensive coordinator. Contracts for Damon Cogdell, Joe DeForest will not be renewed.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 10, 2016
Wickline renowned OL coach, source says WVU will stick with continuity plan and bring offensive staff back, including OL coach Ron Crook.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 10, 2016
Cogdell, DeForest, Mark Scott have contracts that expire soon. Scott will return. WVU had two DL coaches, figure safeties coach joins soon.— Mike Casazza (@mikecasazza) January 10, 2016
WVU has been working with an unbalanced staff for the past year with an extra couple coaches on the defensive side. This also will make the not so silent masses happy with the termination of one Joe DeForest and the hiring of an actual offensive coordinator.
Wickline didn't work out in Texas, but at least he has history and familiarity with Holgorsen from Holgorsen's year in Stillwater.
