WVSN Daily Notebook: Jan. 12, 2021



Welcome to the WVSN Daily Notebook. This post will be updated with news throughout the day, so be sure to check back often to stay on top of everything that’s going on with WVU and West Virginia high school sports.

UPDATE – 5:35 p.m.

Schedule change news for the WVU women’s basketball team:


UPDATE – 5:20 p.m.

Former WVU football coach Rich Rodriguez has a new job: offensive coordinator at Louisiana Monroe.

Plenty of connections here. Obviously Rodriguez was famously the WVU football coach once upon a time and was also a player for the Mountaineers. He started as a standout player at North Marion High before his college playing and coaching career. There is also the West Virginia connection with ULM coach Terry Bowden — a Morgantown High and WVU alum who played for both the Mohigans and Mountaineers.

UPDATE – 7 a.m.

WVU football received exactly one point, meaning one vote at No. 25, in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll released after Monday’s CFP championship game. The Mountaineers finish the season tied with Marshall among the teams also receiving votes.
