Welcome to Morgantown

No. 1-3

Just because they played at WV, doesn't mean they would stay if another team gives a chance to move up in the coaching ranks....they need to hire the best coaches available


Another assistant with no connections to WVU. Let's hope he stays moar than a year or two. #TrustHCNB #HAILWV & GO MOUNTAINEERS !!
