Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia will soon be looking for a new head coach to replace Neal Brown, who has completely and utterly failed during his four seasons in Morgantown.
While Brown’s contract buyout is certainly expensive and unfortunate, but keeping him is just not a viable option at this point. When the new director of athletics is hired, he/she will almost certainly want to immediately replace Brown as their major move and make a splash by hiring their new football head coach.
With the contract buyout looming, and the money already owed to former director of athletics Shane Lyons, West Virginia will not likely be able to afford a coach like Jimbo Fisher, who currently makes over $9 million a season at Texas A&M. However, there is an obvious option who would completely transform the West Virginia football program and bring back the pride of the Mountaineers.
Enter Jahmile Addae.
Addae, a four year starter at West Virginia at defensive back, a two-time captain of the Mountaineers and two-time All Big East selection and former NFL player, is precisely who West Virginia needs to revitalize the program and bring the Mountaineers back to their former glory.
He’s an outstanding former player, a terrific former West Virginia assistant who led the Mountaineers to one of the top defenses in the country when he was co-defensive coordinator for the team and he’s considered one of the top assistant coaches in college football right now as the secondary coach for the Miami Hurricanes.
Addae was rated as the 2nd best recruiter in the entire nation for the 2022 class, has incredible rapport with players and since he would be returning to his alma mater for his first head coaching job, West Virginia could likely get him for less than what they’re currently paying Neal Brown.
Jahmile Addae is a true Mountaineer. A former standout player, a West Virginia graduate, a coach who led the Mountaineers to one of the best defenses in the nation, and he’s the very person who could bring the West Virginia football program back to prominence.
When the new AD is hired, the first name that he/she should look at is Jahmile Addae. He’s a potential program-changer with the highest ceiling of any of the coaches who would come to West Virginia. @Coach_Addae
