Marshall’s Board of Governors is scheduled to meet Monday to take up the selection and contract.

Huff, considered one of the nation’s top recruiters, is a Maryland native. He would be the first African-American head coach at Marshall.

Huff would replace Doc Holliday who was told earlier this month his contract was not being renewed. Holliday coached 11 seasons at Marshall. He won one conference championship and 6 of 8 bowl games.

Huff was on the staff the last few years of West Virginia native Nick Saban. Penn State and Mississippi State were among his previous stops.
