West Virginia's Dana Holgorsen, like nearly all coaches, applauds the addition of a 10th assistant coach, part of the legislation passed Friday by the NCAA Division I Council. And like many, Holgorsen is disappointed with the decision to delay the hirings until January 2018. The original proposal called for the change to occur immediately. "For the life of me," Holgorsen said over the weekend, "I just can't figure out why they didn't make it happen now." Holgorsen said his plans are in place to add an offensive assistant.

Justin Crawford commands the respect of teammates at West Virginia because of his life experience and focus on reaching his goals. Away from the field, he's driven to provide for his family. "I commend him on that part of it," WVU running back coach Tony Dews said, "because there's a lot of guys his age -- and a lot of men even older -- that are out there and may not be as responsible as he is right now."

Justin Crawford, the Big 12 offensive newcomer of the year as a running back last season at West Virginia, said "there was no decision" to make about coming back to school as a senior in 2017. The married father of two and former juco star, who has helped mentor four younger siblings since the death of their father in 2009, wants to finish his job in Morgantown. It speaks to Crawford's tireless work ethic. "When everybody else is sitting at home, relaxing, you can be getting ahead," Crawford said Tuesday in his first interview session since arriving at WVU last summer. (The school restricts first-year players from talking to the media.)
