MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — While West Virginia coach Neal Brown confirmed position assignments for his new 10 full-time assistants on Monday, the staff also clarified their individual recruiting territories.
Each assistant will have an in-state area of focus, typically one that’s geographically linked to that coach’s out-of-state assignments.
Here’s the complete rundown:
Chad Scott (running backs/co-offensive coordinator): Scott grew up in central Florida and has recruited that region throughout his 12-year coaching career. He’ll also be recruiting south New Jersey and Philadelphia, areas where he developed footholds the past three seasons while coaching at Louisville and North Carolina.
Matt Moore (offensive line coach/co-offensive coordinator): Virginia and parts of West Virginia, including Morgantown, Fairmont, Beckley, Bluefield. Moore will spot recruit offensive line across the map.
Sean Reagan (quarterbacks): Chicago, Indianapolis and Kentucky, along with in-state emphasis on Huntington.
Xavier Dye (outside receivers): Baltimore/Washington, D.C., Delaware, Charlotte and South Carolina
Travis Trickett (inside receivers/tight ends): Along with Parkersburg, he’ll recruit Pennsylvania, New York, northern New Jersey, southeast Georgia and south Florida.
Vic Koenning (defensive coordinator): His in-state focus will run from Charleston to Bridgeport, where Koenning said he reached out to 35 coaches last week. He also will maintain a presence across the south Georgia high schools he has covered for the past 18 years.
Blake Seiler (inside linebackers): Along with capitalizing on Seiler’s longstanding connections within the Kansas junior colleges, he will continue recruiting Louisiana, which became his secondary territory at K-State the past five years. Closer to campus, he’s starting to cover new ground across northern Ohio.
Jordan Lesley (defensive line): Mississippi junior colleges; southern Ohio, Atlanta, the Florida panhandle and Mobile, Ala.
Al Pogue (outside linebackers): Western Pennsylvania, Detroit, Georgia and Alabama.
Jahmile Addae (secondary): His in-state focus is Martinsburg, along with Maryland, northern Virginia, central Florida and Las Vegas.
