CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Two legendary West Virginia coaches will talk football and more during a new show that debuts Monday, Sept. 16 on the MetroNews Radio Network.
“The Don Nehlen and Bob Pruett Show” will air each Monday night through Nov. 25 from 7:06 pm. to 8 p.m. on MetroNews affiliates across the state.
“I think our listeners will be surprised at how relevant the comments of Don and Bob will be to football today,” host Dave Weekley said. “This just won’t be a nostalgia show.”
Nehlen will weigh-in on the Mountaineers and the Big 12 Conference, while Pruett will talk about Marshall’s season and what lies ahead for the Thundering Herd.
Weekley said other current college football topics will also be up for discussion, with calls from listeners playing a key part of the program.
Nehlen, a native of Canton, Ohio, won more games than any other coach in the history of WVU football. He led the Mountaineers to a pair of undefeated seasons and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Pruett, a Beckley native, was named national coach of the year in 1996. He led the Herd to 94 wins in nine seasons including a Division I-AA national championship.
