Potential Candidates to Replace Neal Brown at Troy

07 January, 2019, 00:35 | Author: Lula Armstrong
  • Neal Brown has led Troy to a 31-8 record in the past three seasons and won three consecutive bowl games. More

Leaving the great State of West Virginia is hard. Only a few days after Holgorsen left Morgantown for Houston, the Mountaineers have hired Troy's Neal Brown as their next coach. Please welcome Neal, his wife, Brooke, and their children, Adalyn, Anslee and Dax, to West Virginia!

Brown signed a four-year contract extension with Troy after the 2016 season.

Brown, 38, has served as head coach for the Troy Trojans in the Sun Belt Conference for four seasons, with a 35-16 record. WVU, for the second straight season, lost its last three games, including bowl losses to Utah (30-14) in 2017 and Syracuse (34-18) this past season. Brown played high school football in Danville, Kentucky, which is less than 200 miles from the West Virginia border.


He was offensive coordinator at Troy, Texas Tech and Kentucky before taking over for the retiring Larry Blakeney in 2015. After going 4-8 in his first season, the Trojans are 31-8 the past three seasons combined and won three bowl games. They were built more on physicality on both sides of the ball, and Brown's Troy teams ran the ball more often than they passed.

According to a Yahoo report, Brown met with WVU officials twice this week and reminded some of a young Dabo Swinney, who was 39 when he took over at Clemson.

In-house options: Defensive coordinator and safeties coach Vic Koenning or offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Matt Moore.
