According to Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel, West Virginia is expected to hire Louisville Cardinals safeties coach ShaDon Brown as co-defensive coordinator. Brown will step in to replace Jahmile Addae, who left the Mountaineers to take the safeties coach position with the Georgia Bulldogs last week.

Before spending two seasons as the safeties coach under Scott Satterfield, Brown spent two seasons as the defensive passing game coordinator at Colorado under Mike MacIntyre —.where the Buffaloes secondary led the Pac-12 Conference in opposing completion percentage in 2018.

Prior to his stops in Boulder and Louisville, Brown spent the 2016 season at Army as their cornerbacks coach and was instrumental in turning the Black Knights around from a 2-10 record in 2015 to an 8-5 record and a win over North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

His other coaching stops have included the Carolina Panthers (2015), Wofford (2011-15), Rowan County High School (2008-10), Boyle County High School (2008-10), Campbellsville (2008), and University of the Cumberlands (2003-05).

Brown shares a hometown with Neal Brown and is very familiar with his new boss. ShaDon played football for Danville, while the Mountaineer head coach played at rival Boyle County.
