First year Mountaineer head football coach Bill Stewart has hired three members of his first coaching staff at WVU.

Former WVU a.ssistants Steve Dunlap and John "Doc" Holliday will be returning to their alma mater.

Dunlap will serve as a.ssistant head coach. Dunlap will coach safeties. Holliday will be a.ssociate head coach and and be in charge of tight ends and fullbacks.

Holliday returns to WVU from Florida were he was a.ssociate head coach. Holliday also coached wide receivers at WVU. Holliday will be WVU's recruiting coordinator. Dunlap, who has coached at Syracuse and North Carolina State in recent years, was defensive coordinator and coached linebackers and safeties at WVU. He was also a linebackers coach and defensive coordinator at Marshall last season.

Former Mountaineer player David Lockwood will also join the staff as defensive backs coach. Lockwood coached the secondary at Kentucky this season. He coached defensive backs at WVU in 2000, Don Nehlen's final season. He was retained by new coach Rich Rodriguez, but left before the season began. Lockwood as 19 years of coaching experience including time as the defensive coordinator at the University of Minnesota.

Three positions remain to be filled on the staff. Offensive line coach, receivers coach and running backs coach.

Here's more information on the new hires and some others who may be under consideration.

Doc Holliday – Most recently the a.ssociate head coach and safeties coach at the University of Florida. A native of Hurricane, W.Va., and a 1979 graduate of WVU, where he was a linebacker/defensive end, Holliday spent 17 seasons as an a.ssistant coach at his alma mater (1983-99). Other than three seasons as WVU’s inside linebacker coach (1990-92), all his time at West Virginia was spent as its wide receiver coach. Holliday, who is regarded as an excellent recruiter with close ties to the fertile grounds in south Florida, became the a.ssociate head coach and wide receiver coach at North Carolina State in 2000, staying with Chuck Amato’s staff until 2005, when he was hired by Urban Meyer to join him at the University of Florida. Doc has been a part of the Gators’ staff for the past three seasons, and it was believed he was a strong candidate for WVU’s head coaching position when it came open last month.

Steve Dunlap – Served as defensive coordinator and linebacker coach at Marshall last season. An outstanding linebacker for the Mountaineers (1973-75), Dunlap graduated from WVU in 1976 and quickly went into coaching. After five years as a G.A. and part-time a.ssistant at West Virginia, Dunlap joined Gary Tranquill’s staff at Navy for two seasons before returning to WVU as a full-time a.ssistant in 1984. He would spend the next 17 seasons as a member of Don Nehlen’s staff, coaching linebackers (1984-86 and 1991-2000) and defensive backs (1987-92) and eventually rising to the role of defensive coordinator, a position he held for 10 years (1991-2000). Dunlap wasn’t retained by Rodriguez when he took over for Nehlen in 2001, so Steve, a native of Hurricane, W.Va., accepted a job at Syracuse, spending four years with the Orange (2001-04) and then moving on to North Carolina State (2005-06) and eventually to Marshall this past season. Steve’s son Matt is currently a junior at WVU.

David Lockwood – Another former Mountaineer player and one-time WVU a.ssistant coach. Lockwood recently completed his first season as the secondary coach at the University of Kentucky. Prior to that he had been an a.ssistant coach at the University of Minnesota for five years (2002-06), the final two as defensive coordinator. After five years at Memphis (1995-98), where he was the Tigers’ wide receiver coach and then DB coach, Lockwood returned to WVU in 2000. A four-year letterman for the Mountaineers, David was a key contributor as a cornerback for West Virginia’s Fiesta Bowl team in 1988. He was offered a chance to join Rodriguez’s original staff at WVU in 2001 but turned that down for a job coaching corners at Notre Dame in 2001.

possibilities..............

Other coaches that could be under consideration for the other positions include:

Chris Beatty – The 34-year-old native of Centreville, Va., is one people who we know is definitely a candidate, as he was at Mountaineer Field on Tuesday for a formal interview with Stewart and the staff. A 1995 graduate of East Tennessee State, Beatty was a four-year starting wide receiver for the Buccaneers, earning all-Southern Conference honors and leaving as the school’s all-time leader in receiving yards. After a couple years in the CFL, Beatty returned to his native Virginia as a high school coach. He had stops at North Stafford High and Salem High before developing a powerhouse at Landstown High, which went 40-2 in his three years (2003-05). One of his star players was quarterback T.J. Mitchell, who at the time was recruited to West Virginia University by then a.ssistant coach Bill Stewart. Mitchell’s stay at WVU lasted only a couple years before he transferred to Hampton University, and Beatty left Landstown in 2006, also headed to Hampton to become the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Division I-AA powerhouse which boasted the No. 7 scoring offense in I-AA during his lone season with the Pirates. Beatty moved up to the Division I-A level this past season, hired on to be the running back coach at Northern Illinois. After NIU’s long-time head coach Joe Novak retired following this past season, though, Beatty and the rest of the Husky staff were left looking for new jobs.

Pat Kirkland – Currently a graduate a.ssistant for West Virginia, the Akron, Ohio, native stepped up to help guide WVU’s cornerback in preparations for the recent Fiesta Bowl after the Mountaineers’ veteran cornerback coach Tony Gibson resigned early in December to follow Rodriguez to Michigan. Prior to arriving at WVU in 2006 to work with the defense as a G.A., Kirkland had spent the previous six seasons as the defensive coach for Glenville State (W.Va.) College, the last five of which he was the Pioneers’ defensive coordinator. A 1997 graduate of Muskingum College, where he was an all-conference defensive back, Kirkland spent one season as an a.ssistant coach at John Glenn High in New Concord, Ohio.

Pat Randolph – Currently the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach at Howard University, a Division I-AA (FCS) program in Washington, D.C. Randolph is a former running back at WVU (1983-87), where he rushed for 1,200 yards in a career which was interrupted several times by injury. Also a college basketball referee, Randolph previously had spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Guilford College, a Division III program in Greensboro, N.C., before being hired by Morgantown native and first-year Howard head coach Carey Bailey this past spring.

Bill Legg – Currently the co-offensive coordinator and interior offensive line coach at Purdue. Another name from West Virginia past, Legg was an excellent offensive lineman for the Mountaineers (1981-84) before he moved into the coaching ranks. After stops at West Virginia Tech (1988), Eastern Illinois (1989-93) and VMI (1993-95, the final two years under Keydet head coach Bill Stewart), Legg, a native of Poca, W.Va., returned to WVU as offensive line coach in 1996 and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2000. Legg coaxed a 7-5 record, complete with a 49-38 Music City Bowl from that 2000 squad, which was not exactly overloaded with talent. Though Rich Rodriguez had extended a potential offensive coordinator job to Legg in 1999 when Rodriguez came close to accepting the Texas Tech job, Rich did not retain Legg when he took over at WVU in 2001. Instead Legg landed at Marshall, spending two seasons as the Herds’ tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, before moving on to Purdue in 2003. He spent his first three seasons as the Boilermakers’ offensive line coach and for the past two years has also had the title of co-offensive coordinator. Purdue has led the Big Ten Conference in total offense in both of Legg’s two seasons as co-offensive coordinator (435.9 in 2007 and 415.7 in 2006), and this past year the Boilermakers also led the league in scoring (34.3)

Canute Curtis – A former Mountaineer All-American linebacker, Curtis recently completed his third season as defensive ends coach and special teams coordinator at Tennessee State University, a Division I-AA program which is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference. A sixth round draft pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1997 NFL draft, Curtis spent six seasons with Cincinnati. In 2004, he landed a job as an a.ssistant coach at Towson (Md.) University and then moved on to Tennessee State the next season.

Dale Wolfley – Currently in his second season as the head coach at Phoenix College, a junior college program in Arizona. A standout offensive lineman (1987-90) at WVU, the Orchard Park, N.Y., native is the younger brother of Craig (Syracuse and then the Pittsburgh Steelers) and Ron (WVU and the Cleveland Brown and St. Louis/Arizona Rams), who were each successful in the college and pro ranks. Dale spent three years as a G.A. at WVU (1991-93) before moving into private business. A few years ago, Ron (who also serves as a color commentator for the Cardinals’ radio network as well as a sports talk show host in the Phoenix area) became the head coach at Phoenix College, and he enticed Dale to become his defensive coordinator and defensive line coach. After the 2005 season, Ron decided to concentrate all his efforts into his radio career, and Dale moved up to be the Bears’ head coach. Dale has developed a program which is deep in talent. One of his defensive backs, Brantwon Bowser, recently signed with the Mountaineers and will enroll at WVU when the spring semester starts next week. Two other Phoenix defensive standouts, Tevita Finau and Aki Vakalah, are also being recruited by West Virginia, as well as a number of other major college programs.

Marcus Kinney – A possible replacement for Mike Barwis as strength coach, Kinney worked with Barwis during a couple different stints at WVU, including 2004-05, when he was the Mountaineers’ director of skill development. Kinney, who earned a Masters from WVU in 1997, worked directly with the strength and conditioning aspect of the Mountaineers’ football program while the director of skill development, but last year was enticed to the University of Tulsa to become its director of strength and conditioning.

Reports Say Reynaud Going Pro
Staff
Morgantown, W.Va.


The Pittsburgh Post Gazette and the Charleston Daily Mail are reporting that West Virginia receiver Darius Reynaud is leaving for the NFL.

"He's going to go into the draft," his mother, Katrina, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Wednesday.

Reynaud graduates in May and will earn back the year of eligibility he lost in 2004-05 due. Reynaud submitted paperwork to the draft advisory committee last year, according to the Post-Gazette. He submitted paperwork again last month.

"I have to feed my daughter," he told the Post-Gazette last month. "Every time I step on the field, that's my motivation."

Reynaud and his fiancee of more than a year have a two-month-old daughter.

After Reynaud's last game, he said the decision to stay or leave would be a tough one.

"It's going to be a last-minute decision," he told the Pittsburgh newspaper. "I have a tough choice to make and I'll sit down with my parents and talk about all this. It'll be really hard to leave knowing we have lot of guys coming back on offense and that we have a chance to be really good again next year."

Defensive end Johnny Dingle has also announced he's going pro. Junior running back Steve Slaton has submitted paperwork to the advisory committee, but has not officially made a decision yet.
i really wanted him to stay, he's a helluva player but cant blame him for wanting to test the waters, best of luck to him

Detroit Paper Follows Shred-riguez Controversy


(The following is a story from Tuesday's Detroit Free Press Newspaper)

Rich Rodriguez reportedly destroyed WVU players' files

January 15, 2008

By MARK SNYDER
FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER


Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez remains public enemy No. 1 in West Virginia.

If today's reports from West Virginia newspapers are true, with the first one emerging from the Charleston (W. Va.) Gazette, the hatred is about to reach a new level.

The initial Gazette report, which cited an unnamed source, said that Rodriguez “destroyed all or most of the paperwork filed relating to every player on the Mountaineer roster and virtually all of the activities conducted by the programs over the past seven years.”

Rodriguez and Michigan officials were unavailable for comment this morning.

Rodriguez, who was hired by Michigan to replace Lloyd Carr on Dec. 17, removed all files pertaining to the players, the Gazette reported, including academic records and community service events, disciplinary results and all of the strength and conditioning data.

Their summer camp records and financial accounting are gone, as well as the players’ contact information.

The discovery occurred in the past 10 days since the West Virginia football staff returned from the Jan. 2 Fiesta Bowl.

The Gazette’s source alleges the incident occurred sometime between Rodriguez’s resignation on Dec. 19 and the team’s return from Arizona on Jan. 3.

Rodriguez had spent most of that time in West Virginia, he told the Detroit media.

The paper quotes multiple sources who work in the Puskar Center, the West Virginia football building, saying they saw Rodriguez and his video coordinator shredding paperwork on Dec. 18, the day after Rodriguez’s introductory news conference in Ann Arbor.

An athletic department source is quoted by the paper saying the department isn’t planning its own investigation. But this may affect Rodriguez’s chance of avoiding his buyout and will likely attract the attention of the university’s attorneys.

West Virginia sued Rodriguez for the $4 million buyout he owed the school for breaking his contract six years before it was to expire.

Should theft or destruction of state property be proven, it likely would damage his contention that the university did not live up to its promises, thus invalidating the agreement.

Rodriguez, who also brought six a.ssistant coaches and five support staff members from West Virginia, is scheduled to be on the road recruiting for Michigan the next three weeks. National Signing Day is Feb. 6.

West Virginia’s sports information director Mike Montoro had no comment and Rodriguez’s agent, Mike Brown, said Tuesday morning he had not seen the report.

West Virginia athletic director Ed Pastilong is out of town, attending the Big East meetings.

MORGANTOWN--Some men are leaders, some men have leadership thrust on them, someone famous once said.

In the case of Noel Devine, 20, perhaps both are the case.

Left parentless at age 11, he lived with guardians through high school and fathered two children. Meanwhile his exploits at North Fort Myers (Fla.) made his running style among the most familiar in high school, colleges and pros.

The reason was because of his estimated 10 YouTube clips that have circulated on the internet since his high-school sophomore season some 2 million hits have been made.

He was a freshman All-American here because he averaged 12 yards every time he touched the ball on a carry, a pass reception, or a kickoff return. He did this playing behind All-American Steve Slaton.


Last season Devine carried the ball 73 times for 627 yards, an average of 8.6 ypc.
One NFL scouting service called him "a human blur." Rivals.com came up with a catchy nickname for Pat White and him, "the scary stars."

Yet with all this notoriety, Devine said Monday his major goal this spring is to "become a leader . . . a better leader. I'm in the process of that."

Recently, Devine, running mate Jock Sanders, redshirt freshman Eain Smith and junior college transfer Brantwon Bowser plead no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge resulting from a f!ght last month outside a Morgantown nightclub. Each will serve 24 hours of community service and pay a fine.

Commenting, head coach Bill Stewart said, " To me disrespecting someone downtown of the opposite s3x is a whole lot worse that bumping into a guy in a bar, which you shouldn't be in the bar anyhow. But, to me there's intangibles in life. Sometimes there's confrontations, sometimes you don't handle confrontations right, but preplanned, pre arranged instances--you can't overlook that."

Having disciplined the four in-house, Stewart allowed Devine, Sanders, Smith and Bowser to participate in spring drills which entered their fourth day on Wednesday. Earlier this winter Stewart had severed ties with three other Mountaineers charged with felony possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver.

The rest now is in the hands of Devine, who saw his share of altercations in high school.

When you have the star power of Noel's magnitude, sometimes trouble comes looking for you. But there is also joy.

Every skill position recruit who comes to West Virginia on an official visit wants to meet No. 7 and then desires to elaborate about it afterward.

One random youngster in New Jersey wrote to WVU President Mike Garrison asking to be considered for the Mountaineer head football coaching job when it was vacated by Rich Rodriguez in December. Were he not in the running, he asked for a Devine gold and blue jersey to make up for it.

"I try to get all of them in," Devine said of the recruits. "If the kids request to meet me on a recruiting visit, sure I'll see them. A lot of them want to race me to see how fast I really am," he said, a smile creasing his stoic face.

""He's as quick as he looked on television...So quick and yet he has great patience and things like that. My goal is to just let him run fast and do the things he does so well," said new WVU running backs coach Chris Beatty of the first time he saw him on the field.

The 5-foot-8 Devine also has commented that he could handle at least 30 carries a game as the feature back, despite his size; which he said he wanted to jump up to 180 lbs.

Obviously, he will get his chance. He will share carries with White, who was and is the Mountaineers' pre-eminent star. WVU hopes that bruiser Terence Kerns will pass the necessary test to earn admittance this summer.

For now, however, Devine is The Man. He showed what he could do against Oklahoma in the 48-28 Fiesta Bowl victory on Jan. 2. In that game, Slaton, who was heir apparent to the tailback job this spring before leaving for the NFL Draft, was carted off early with an injury. Devine slipped in to run for touchdowns of 17 and 65 yards.

"I've always been like this--a leader. Being mature is something I've always had to be. I know a lot more than a lot of kids my age. I can be silly, sure--in the Towers (dorms) when I'm playing with my friends. That's the time. But I'm working on leadership qualities even more out here."
