Jake Spavital (Offensive Coordinator)

Spavital enters his 2nd season as West Virginia offensive coordinator under Dana Holgorsen. Since 2011, Dana Holgorsen has served as both a head coach and play-caller for the offense. Coach Spavital’s relationship with Holgorsen, however, led to the head coach “firing” himself as the coordinator and allowing Spavital to take full control of the offense last season. Spavital certainly fielded a high-octane offense in 2017, with wide receiver David Sills V leading the nation in touchdowns (18) and quarterback Will Grier finished 8th in passing touchdowns (34). One could argue that Grier may have ultimately led the country in TD’s, had he not injured his hand diving for the pylon against Texas in Week 12. Under Spavital’s tutelage, Geno Smith, Johnny Manziel, Brandon Weeden, and Davis Webb were able to hear their names called during the NFL draft. West Virginia’s Will Grier has the opportunity to add his name to a talented list in 2018.
