West Virginia hires Troy's Brown as new coach

Neal Brown, who is one of only six FBS coaches with 10 victories in each of the past three seasons, has been hired as the new football coach at West Virginia.

West Virginia is hiring Troy's Neal Brown as its next coach, sources tell ESPN's Mark Schlabach. Yahoo first reported the impending hire. Brown emerged as the leading candidate for WVU even before Dana Holgorsen officially left for Houston, sources said. He spoke to WVU on Thursday. Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell and West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson also were interviewed for the job. Brown amazingly had been passed over for several Power 5 opportunities, so this is a real steal for WVU late in the cycle.

Former West Virginia receivers coach Tyron Carrier said the chances of him joining Dana Holgorsen's offensive staff at Houston are "pretty good. This is home." Carrier was a star receiver for the Cougars from 2008-11 and was recently named FootballScoop's receivers coach of the year. Carrier was with Holgorsen when the new head coach was introduced at Houston's basketball game on Wednesday.
