West Virginia Football Promotes Chad Scott to Offensive Coordinator



West Virginia football has hired a familiar face as its new offensive coordinator.

While speaking in front of players on the team, head coach Neal Brown announced the promotion of Chad Scott. Scott will still also remain run game coordinator in addition to assuming the OC position.

“Chad knows what our strengths are, and he has earned this opportunity. I have coached with him for 13 years, and I trust him and the positive energy he brings every day to our team,” Brown said. He then continued to explain why he feels promoting Scott is the right decision.

“Coach Scott has been a part of elite offenses in the past at Troy, Texas Tech and North Carolina and that experience has prepared him for this leadership role. The fact that he has built strong relationships with our players and is a tremendous teacher of the game will have a positive effect on our entire offensive unit,” added Brown.

Scott will be entering his fifth season on the WVU coaching staff. He specialized in the running game in the four previous years. As far as offensive coordinator experience, Scott served as the co-offensive coordinator for his first three years with the Mountaineers.

The running game averaged 171.5 yards per game in 2022 under Scott thanks to depth from running backs Tony Mathis, Justin Johnson, CJ Donaldson and Jaylen Anderson. They all combined for 1,793 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Scott received a loud ovation of cheers from the players after they heard the news.
