Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia has hired a new offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach!
Graham Harrell, who was the offensive coordinator at the University of Southern California (USC) last season, will take over for the Mountaineers for the 2022 season!
Neal Brown said the following of the hiring: “I have followed Graham’s playing and coaching career for quite some time, and there’s no question he is a talented coach with a bright future. He has a successful track record as a play caller, has done an outstanding job of developing quarterbacks and is a proven winner.
His character, competitiveness and positive energy is a great fit for our program. He brings Power 5 coaching experience and an extensive knowledge of the Big 12. I know he is looking forward to getting started, meeting our staff and players.”
Neal Brown also added, “Since the end of the season, I have spent time reflecting on the program, and take responsibility, knowing we have to be better offensively. I’ve been serving in a dual role as the offensive coordinator coordinator and head coach, and we need to bring in another voice for the offense. Having Graham as the offensive coordinator and working with Gerad as the #2 lead in the offensive room, as he has done, will make us a better, more efficient offense and move us in the direction we need to head. In turn, that will allow me to be a more effective CEO of the Mountaineer football program.”
Welcome to #AlmostHeaven, Graham Harrell!
