The West Virginia Mountaineers have announced the hiring of former senior offensive analyst Dan Gerberry as an assistant offensive coach, filling the new tenth assistant coach position allowed by the NCAA.

Gerberry served as the senior offensive analyst during the 2017, and was an offensive graduate assistant during the 2015 season. Gerberry spent the 2016 season as a graduate assistant at Pitt, working with the offensive line and tight ends.

As the senior football analyst in 2017, he was responsible for organizing, implementing and maintaining all aspects of game analysis. He analyzed game film and created game plans to assist the coaching staff with game preparation. He also oversaw the football analysts and the quality control graduate assistant coaches.

Gerberry started 50 consecutive games over his college career on the offensive line at Ball State, was a two-year team captain and helped lead the Cardinals to two straight bowl games during his junior and senior seasons. He played offensive line for the NFL’s Detroit Lions from 2009-11.
