Report: WVU to Promote Current Assistant to QB Coach to Replace Sean Reagan

Less than 24 hours after news broke that Sean Reagan is leaving WVU to become the offensive coordinator at Troy, a report now suggests West Virginia has his replacement.

The Mountaineers are now expected to name Tyler Allen as the new quarterbacks coach, per Matt Zenitz of 247 Sports. Zenitz also broke the news about Reagan being hired by Troy.

Allen has been an analyst and special assistant to at WVU since 2022. He was previously the quarterbacks coach at Jacksonville State, helping Zion Webb earn first-team all-conference honors.

Reagan’s departure means new Troy head coach Gerad Parker is giving an opportunity to another WVU coach. Parker has already hired former West Virginia safeties coach Dontae Wrightas his defensive coordinator.

These hires should not come as too much of a shock since Parker has a relationship with several coaches on Neal Brown’s staff from his own time in Morgantown. Parker served as the WVU offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at WVU during the 2020 season. He then spent a few years at Notre Dame before being hired as Troy’s next head coach this off-season.

Reagan has a long history with Troy, working in multiple capacities there from 2011 to 2018 prior to leaving to join Brown with the Mountaineers. He even started his coaching career off as a grad assistant at Troy in 2008.
