The end of the regular football season is here and with it brings the turning of the coaching carousel. Wednesday afternoon the Mountaineers football program saw its first departure. Offensive coordinator Jake Spavital will be leaving West Virginia to take the head coaching job at Texas State University.
Spavital is returning to the State of Texas after two season at West Virginia, in his second stint in Morgantown. The new head coach had previous offensive coordinator positions at Texas A&M and Cal following his first tenure at West Virginia.
Texas State will be Spavital’s first foray into the head coaching position. He replaces Everett Withers who was fired mid-November after three seasons with the team.
