The Perfect Replacement for Graham Harrell

Morgantown, West Virginia – As reported last night, Graham Harrell is expected to leave West Virginia University to accept the same position as the offensive coordinator at Purdue.

Harrell, 37, spent spent one year as West Virginia’s offensive coordinator, after three years in the same role at USC.

West Virginia will now begin its search for the team’s next offensive coordinator and there’s one potential candidate that stands out among the rest.

Chris Beatty.

Beatty, 49, is the wide receivers coach for the Los Angeles Chargers alongside Pat White and is a former assistant coach at Pitt, Maryland, Virginia, Wisconsin, Illinois, Vanderbilt and was the running backs/slot receivers coach for the West Virginia Mountaineers from 2008-2010.

Pat White believes that Beatty is the perfect candidate for the Mountaineers. When asked about Beatty, White said the following: “A native of 757 (area code 757 is located in eastern Virginia and covers Chesapeake, Newport News, Portsmouth and Suffolk) that will recruit the best of the best and empower all the rest that want to be a part of magical Morgantown. You would be hard-pressed to find a player that has anything but positive feedback from interactions with Chris Beatty.”

White added, “Chris Beatty deserves to be at the top of everyone’s list.”

Beatty is a highly-respected coach who is capable of bringing in some of the most talented players in the nation to play for the Mountaineers, particularly with the help of NIL money from Country Roads Trust. Although there will be many outstanding coaches considered, Chris Beatty is a true game-changer for the program and should, like Pat White said, be at the very top of West Virginia’s list.
