Prepping the Rebuild

WVU defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel knows that he has a big rebuilding task in front of him, but it's no different than other such situations he has faced in his career at West Virginia.

Jeff Casteel will face the 2011 season without proven performers such as Chris Neild, Robert Sands, and J.T. Thomas, just to mention a few. Given those graduations, any reasonable observer would not expect results equaling those of the 2010 campaign, but that's not the way Casteel looks at it. Recalling the year following West Virginia's Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma, Casteel instead notes that it's time for a new group of players to make their mark.

In this interview, Casteel discusses the process of identifying the new players who will take the place of departed starters and key performers.
