Associate Head Coach & Offensive Line Coach Rick Trickett, has informed WVU officials that he is removing his name from consideration for the head coach position.
Trickett, 59, interviewed for the vacated head coaching position earlier in the week with WVU Athletic Director Ed Pastilong. The Masontown native has long been considered as the nation's finest offensive line mentor, and spent the first six seasons of the Rich Rodriguez era in Morgantown tutoring a line which paved the way for record-breaking runners such as Avon Cobourne, Quincy Wilson, Kay-Jay Harris, Steve Slaton, Rasheed Marshall, and Patrick White.
Trickett coached two Freshman All Americans in Rodney Hudson & Ryan McMahon. Under his watch the offensive line has given up fewer sacks compared to last year and gradually improved from the start of the season until the end. Trickett is also a great recruiter, who is upgrading the talent on the line as well.
