Jake Spavital returns to WVU as offensive coordinator
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Jake Spavital is returning to West Virginia as offensive coordinator.
Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen announced Spavital's hiring Saturday. He'll also coach the quarterbacks.
Spavital was interim coach at Cal after Sonny Dykes was fired last Sunday. Spavital had finished his first season as Cal's offensive coordinator. Under him, Davis Webb threw for 4,295 and 37 touchdowns.
Spavital was the quarterbacks coach in 2011 and 2012 under Holgorsen at West Virginia, where Geno Smith set numerous school records. Spavital spent three years after that at Texas A&M.
