1) Stedman Bailey is going pro. He informed Dana Holgorsen and the head coach told the media at his press conference Monday.
2) Keith Patterson is your new defensive coordinator. Joe DeForest is associate head coach/safeties coach. There is no co- anymore. DeForest did not speak with reporters Monday, but Holgorsen was complimentary of DeForest as Holgorsen detailed the move and the duties.
Holgorsen said DeForest is “very, very, very valuable to our coaching staff, to our football program because he wears many hats.”
3) Graduate assistant Andrew Magee, invited to WVU by DeForest this season, will coach cornerbacks in the bowl game. He was a pretty good player, when healthy, at Oklahoma State who had a shot in the NFL before the Chicago Bears red-flagged a neck injury.
4) Grades were due at WVU Monday. Holgorsen said he wasn’t sure about player statuses but hoped to know later in the day. I’ve been told there are worries about a small amount of key players, though WVU thinks most, if not all, will be clear of eligibility concerns.
