Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia Mountaineers head coach Neal Brown made a huge addition to his coaching staff today, hiring former University of Southern California offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Graham Harrell to the same position in Morgantown.
However, West Virginia is without a tight ends coach after Travis Trickett left the Mountaineers to become the new offensive coordinator at the University of South Florida.
Seth Doege, Jarret Doege’s older brother, played for Neal Brown when he was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Texas Tech.
Seth Doege is currently the tight ends coach at USC and worked closely with Graham Harrell for the past two years with the Trojans. Doege arrived at USC after 3 seasons (2016-18) at Bowling Green.
Considering his close relationship with Harrell, the fact that he played under Neal Brown in college and West Virginia’s need for a tight ends assistant coach, Doege almost makes too much sense.
Doege, 32, was also instrumental in the recruiting effort of five star quarterback Jaxson Dart out of high school. Dart, who entered the transfer portal moments after Graham Harrell was announced as the new offensive coordinator of the Mountaineers, has been rumored to be interested in following his former offensive coordinator to Morgantown.
Harrell joining West Virginia as the offensive coordinator was huge for West Virginia, but bringing a quality assistant coach and one of the best young quarterbacks in the nation along with him would be incredible for the Mountaineers football program.
