The job Neal Brown did during his time at Troy was tremendous — there is no debate. His quick turnaround going from 4-8 his first season to 10-3 in his second caught the eyes of many around the nation.
Year 1 at Troy: 4-8

Brown is one of the game's top program builders… and his second Mountaineer team is deeper and more experienced than his first one pic.twitter.com/M6M7EDpKGA

Rich Cirminiello of Maxwell Football Club expects the Mountaineers to take a turn in their second season under Brown. Depth and experience were listed as his two main reasons why he expects a jump in West Virginia in 2020, and he would also give Brown the ultimate praise.
Cirminiello would call Brown a “top-program builder.” Of course, this isn’t something West Virginia fans didn’t already know, but seeing Neal Brown receive this level of praise nationally only gives us optimism moving into the future.
