As the West Virginia Mountaineers look to continue upon last season’s success they will have to do it with some new faces both on the field and on the sidelines.
Head coach Dana Holgorsen, for the first time since taking the helm at West Virginia, is conceding play-calling duties to Jake Spavital, who rejoins the Mountaineers after stints at Texas A&M and Cal.
Also gone is quarterback Skyler Howard, replaced by former Florida starter Will Grier. So while the Mountaineers look to build upon their first 10-win season in the Big 12, they also look forward to 2017 with the return of former coaches and old rivalries renewed.
