Pat White Should Replace Sean Reagan

MORGANTOWN, WV – Last night, it was reported by 247Sports that WVU Quarterbacks Coach Sean Reagan had been hired by Troy as their new offensive coordinator. The news came as a shock to everyone, but considering that Troy just hired Gerad Parker as head coach, it made perfect sense for Reagan to make the move.

Now, Head Coach Neal Brown is left scrambling to find a replacement for a quarterback room that is loaded with young talent. Brown has been on record stating that the program plans to recruit only mobile quarterbacks moving forward. Given his current stance on the quarterback position, there is a logical choice to replace Reagan in Morgantown.

That man is WVU great Pat White.

White played for the Mountaineers from 2005 to 2008, and left as arguably the most decorated quarterback in program history. He made his name using his incredible scrambling ability, and understands what it takes to make a difference with a particular skill set.

Since the conclusion of his playing career, White has also found his way into the coaching scene. He spent the last two seasons as an offensive analyst for the Los Angeles Chargers, and has coached quarterbacks previously at Alabama State and Alcorn State. The Chargers recently made a coaching change that will likely leave White without an immediate home for the 2024 season.

With some years under his belt, a return to Morgantown should ultimately be in the cards for the Alabama native. White would be the perfect coach to bring in a new era of mobile quarterbacks in Morgantown. The three primary quarterbacks on WVU’s roster heading in 2024, Garrett Greene, Nicco Marchiol, and Khalil Wilkins, all have the ability to make defense pay with their legs. Under the guidance of one of the best to ever do it, this quarterback room could quickly become a force to be reckoned with.

Only time will tell if Brown will even consider White. But if he does, this could be the perfect marriage for the program moving forward.
