Draft Kings: “Neal Brown Looking for a New Job in 2024”

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Draft Kings’ Chinmay Vaidya released his “Hot Seat Week 2” list yesterday and unsurprisingly West Virginia head coach Neal Brown was front and center on the list.

According to Vaidya, “Neal Brown has a permanent position in this column until he is gone.” Brown, who is currently 23-26 overall and 14-21 in the Big 12 Conference in his 5th season with the Mountaineers, was on the hot seat all last season and remained there to begin this season.

“Barring a scenario where West Virginia wins the Big 12, he is effectively gone at the end of the year,” Vaidya said of Brown. “The Backyard Brawl is a chance to provide some relief but Brown is going to be looking for a new job in 2024.”

West Virginia plays Pitt this Saturday, September 16, and will play Texas Tech the following Saturday at home. These two games have been circled on the calendar as the two games that could potentially decide Neal Brown’s future. If the Mountaineers lose one or both of the games, Brown could be in major trouble. If they win, he could buy himself more time on the West Virginia sideline.
