WVU Fans Rejoice Over Reports of Wren Baker Extension



Blaine Stewart and Wren Baker

Reports that WVU signed director of athletics Wren Baker to a two-year extension instantly sparked excitement and support from members of Mountaineer Nation on social media. Baker’s new deal will keep him in Morgantown through December of 2030, further ending any speculation that another school could steal him away.

Since taking over the position for Shane Lyons, Baker has played a part in men’s and women’s basketball hires, as well as volleyball. Baker has also helped with the transition of the baseball program as manager Randy Mazey will retire at the conclusion of the season. In March, Baker extended football head coach Neal Brown for another year after a nine-win season that included a Duke’s Mayo Bowl win over North Carolina.

Before WVU, Wren Baker served at North Texas’ athletic director, helping the Green Wave transition into the American Athletic Conference.
