WVU HC Neal Brown to Handle Play Call Duties for Offense



WVU Football Neal Brown and Garrett Greene

There’s no reason to wonder about who is going to call plays for WVU this season. At Big 12 Media Days, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown confirmed what he’s been alluding to all offseason that he will be the one leading the play calling.

Brown has previously said he will be “more involved” in the offense, but is now comfortable making it known that he will handle the plays. This means Chad Scott, who was promoted to offensive coordinator after the departure of Graham Harrell, will be taking cues from his head coach when it comes to how the offense will be run during games.

Brown’s confirmation is not exactly shocking news to anyone who has been following the program. He already has revealed that he actually took back over the play calling towards the end of last season once he realized the offensive struggles were not getting corrected.

Before relinquishing play calling to Harrell, Brown was in charge of the plays for the Mountaineers throughout his first three years at WVU. Brown has had most of his success as an assistant or head coach on the offensive side of the ball, including his time as head coach at Troy.

The next step is Brown officially announcing WVU’s starting quarterback, granted he’s made it clear he will not name the winner of the competition between Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol until after fall camp. There’s even the possibility they both could see action early in the season.

Just a few weeks ago, Neal Brown talked with WVSN’s Mike Asti in a lengthy interview and discussed his tenure to this point. Brown went into detail about his plans for the offense in this show.
