With the departure of Blake Seiler to Old Dominion, the WVU Football team has been in the midst of a search for their next Linebackers Coach. While plenty of names have been tossed around, it appears that a new favorite has emerged. Former Ole Miss Linebackers Coach Jeff Koonz has now became the favorite to land the job. Koonz had also previously spent time at North Texas University under Head Coach Seth Litrell.

Along with Koonz, former WVU Defensive Coordinator Jeff Casteel has also been rumored to be one of the front runners for the job. Check back to The Voice of West Virginia for updates.
