According to a report from Matt Jessen-Howard of Rivals, former West Virginia Mountaineers star defensive back Jahmile Addae will make his way back to Morgantown as an assistant coach under Neal Brown.
#Gophers DB coach Jahmile Addae has accepted a position with West Virginia, his alma mater. @Coach_Addae coached up a young secondary this season and was the lead recruiter for a handful of commits, such as Grimes, Howden, Gordon, Brown, and Wiley.— Matt Jessen-Howard (@mjessenhoward) January 14, 2019
Addae will likely fill the role of cornerbacks coach under new defensive coordinator Vic Koenning.
Jahmile coached the Minnesota Golden Gophers defensive backs under head coach PJ Fleck during the 2018 football season, and spent five years on Rich Rodriguez’s staff at Arizona before that. Prior to his stint with the Wildcats, Addae served as running backs coach for Cincinnati in 2010 and 2011, where he mentored Bearcats standout Isaiah Pead.
Addae played for the Mountaineers from 2001 through 2005, and registered 189 total tackles in 42 games.
