WVU to interview assistant football coaching candidates this week
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia will interview 8-10 coaches this week for the two vacancies on the football staff, sources told the Charleston Daily Mail on Monday.
WVU Coach Dana Holgorsen must replace cornerbacks coach Daron Roberts, who was fired last month, and associate head coach and special teams coach Steve Dunlap, who was dismissed Saturday.
Holgorsen is in Nashville, Tenn., for the American Football Coaches Association convention and could not be reached for comment.
According to a source, WVU wants to expedite the hiring process with a coaches meeting looming Friday and a team meeting Sunday.
