Confirming a report from earlier in the week, Victor Cabral released a statement to announce he is leaving Appalachian State to join the WVU defensive staff on Friday night.

Cabral will serve as outside linebackers coach at West Virginia. He is leaving one group of Mountaineers for another as he moves up to the major conference level in the Big 12.

While not a direct replacement, this move gets the defense another coach after losing Dontae Wright when he left to take over as defensive coordinator at Troy.

Cabral, who took over the defensive line at Appalachian State before last season, helped lead a group that contributed to a defense that totaled 16 sacks in 2023.

A former defensive lineman at Georgia Southern in the early 2000’s, Cabral spent time at GSU before joining Appalachian State.
