WVU WR Coach Leaves for Same Position at South Florida



WVU head coach will have at least one spot on his coaching staff to fill in the new year.

Announced Saturday, wide receivers coach Xavier Dye was hired by the Unversity of South Florida into the same position.

At USF, Dye will be reunited with the coach from his playing days, Jeff Scott. Scott coached Dye for three seasons (2007-10) while Dye was a receiver at Clemson and Scott was the co-offensive coordinator. Dye later joined Scott’s staff as a graduate assistant.

Shortly after the announcement, Brown thanked Dye via Twitter and wished him the best of luck.

Brown also announced that they have already started a search for Dye’s replacement.

West Virginia’s receiving corps this past season was very young and often injured. Redshirt freshman Sam James led the Mountaineers in both receptions (69) and receiving yards (677). Graduate transfer George Campbell led the team with seven receiving touchdowns.

As of now, Dye’s departure is the only opening on WVU’s coaching staff.
