Nicco Marchiol and Garrett Greene are set to duke it out on the gridiron for the honor of being West Virginia’s starting quarterback this fall. While many would expect the two sides to remain strictly competitive, both signal-callers revealed that their relationship is as strong as ever.
Marchiol and Greene spoke about their relationship today with Country Roads Trust.
A friendship that will last forever. @garrett3greene and @MarchiolNicco are ready to attack this quarterback battle together.

Greene states that despite their competitive nature on the field, the two are best friends and will remain that way “for the rest of his life.”
He also commends both his and Marchiol’s ability to separate their relationship both on and off the field.
Marchiol, who will be a redshirt freshman in 2023, praises the competition. Not only does he believe that it will make them better as players, but states it will be great for the program as a whole.
Unless one of the quarterbacks clearly pulls away from the other in the competition, Head Coach Neal Brown does not to expect to name a starter until the fall. No matter what happens, WVU will have a solid starting quarterback moving forward.
