Little played running back for the Mountaineers in 2003 and 2004 after three seasons playing at Ferrum College.
“I am excited that Freddie has joined the WVU football program as our director of player relations,” Brown said in a statement. “Freddie played here at West Virginia, has a passion for this University and is an outstanding leader of men. It’s always great to have former players on your staff, and I am certain with the experience that he brings, he will play an important role in the development of our student-athletes.”
In his new role, Little will act as a player development liaison for their off-the-field activities and will be the program’s liaison to the athletics department’s sports psychologist, counseling center, campus/city law enforcement and student service/conduct.
Little has earned two degrees from WVU, a bachelor of arts in multidisciplinary studies in 2013 and a master’s in athletic coaching education in 2020. He has served as a state trooper with the West Virginia State Police since 2014 and on the WVU football security team since 2016.
