WVU Football HC Neal Brown and WVU AD Wren Baker

A year after being on the hot seat, Neal Brown has a new contract extension at WVU. West Virginia announced a one-year extension of Brown’s contract on Tuesday morning.

Brown’s new deal will keep him under contract through the 2027 season.

WVU director of athletics offered his thoughts about Brown as part of the press release with the news.

“I am pleased with the progress I’ve seen in our football program since arriving last year,” Baker said. “I believe this contract amendment allows us to continue to build on our momentum as we begin our first year in the new and expanded Big 12 Conference. I’m appreciative of the effort Coach Brown and his staff put into developing the young people in our program both on and off the field.”

Below includes Brown’s own words on his new deal to stay in Morgantown.

“My first priority was retaining and rewarding our assistant coaches and support staff who have played such a critical role in our success,” Brown said. “I appreciate Wren’s support on that front as well as his continued commitment to me and what we are building. We share a common vision for this program and that alignment is critical to our continued success. There are great things ahead, and I can’t wait to see our incredible fans back in Milan Puskar Stadium on August 31.”

The hype around the 2024 Mountaineers stems from WVU’s surprising success in 2023 and the fact most of the key contributors are returning. West Virginia finished 9-4, including a Duke’s Mayo Bowl win, and 6-3 in Big 12 play. Garrett Greene is now being recognized by some experts as one of the best quarterbacks in all of college football.
