A former WVU player and coach is leaving the college game to join an NFL staff. On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills announced the hiring of Jahmile Addae as their new cornerbacks coach.
Addae is leaving his role as secondary coach at the University of Miami (FL) for a spot on Sean McDermott’s staff in Buffalo. Prior to his time with the Hurricanes in the ACC, Addae was at Georgia as part of their national championship season in 2021 and served under Neal Brown at West Virginia, first as defensive backs coach and then as the co-defensive coordinator.

Addae was a two-time captain and two-time All-Big East defensive back during his playing career as a Mountaineer from 2001-2005.
He now becomes the latest college assistant to jump to the NFL this coaching cycle, with several, including former Pitt defensive line coach and lead recruiter Charlie Partridge admitting the chaos of NIL and the transfer portal influenced his decision to move to the pro ranks with an NFL team.
Addae will now be able to coach fellow former Mountaineer Rasul Douglas on the Bills.
