Contract Details to WVU’s New OC Graham Harrell Released



According to WV Sports Dot Com insider Jared Serre, the contract details to West Virginia’s new offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Graham Harrell was released.

Serre tweeted the figures to Graham’s contract on Tuesday afternoon.

Harrell will make $600,000 the first year signed with West Virginia University. The university then will increase Harrell’s pay to $800,000 and $850,000 by his third year.

Harrell would also receive a $50,000 incentive bonus if he is still on the staff by August 1, 2023.

Harrell was hired by the WVU football program on Monday afternoon. The 36-year-old was previously the offensive coordinator at Southern California and spent time with Oklahoma State, Washington State and North Texas. Harrell played quarterback for Mike Leach and Texas Tech from 2005-08.

“I have followed Graham’s playing and coaching career for quite some time, and there’s no question he is a talented coach with a bright future,” WVU head coach Neal Brown said. “He has a successful track record as a play caller, has done an outstanding job of developing quarterbacks, and is a proven winner. His character, competitiveness, and positive energy is a great fit for our program. He brings Power 5 coaching experience and an extensive knowledge of the Big 12. I know he is looking forward to getting started, meeting our staff and players.”
