West Virginia WR coach leaving for USF


West Virginia coach Neal Brown has seen the first change in his coaching staff as wide receivers coach Xavier Dye has left the program.

Dye has taken the same position South Florida under new USF head coach Jeff Scott.

Dye thanked Brown and West Virginia in a tweet announcing his departure.

“’West By God Virginia’ is a really special place, and it didn’t take long for me to realize that,” Dye wrote. “I want to thank Coach Brown for giving me this opportunity…The best is yet to come!”

Brown also thanked Dye via Twitter.

“I want to thank Xavier Dye for his contributions to WV football over the last 10 months,” Brown posted. “We wish him the best as he reunites with close friend and mentor Jeff Scott.”
