Seeing Progress

Now that West Virginia has gotten into the portion of fall camp when it has put on the pads and has started to hit, the coaches are starting to get a better grasp of players who are playing well and can compete for playing time.

On both sides of the ball, there has been clear progress being made this offseason in terms of added depth and players getting to a point where they are able to handle larger roles while becoming better leaders.

Offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson has seen the Mountaineer offense have good days and bad days, but the chemistry is starting to build and there has been some signs that a good amount of depth will be present - even though the offense is still, admittedly, "far from a finished product."

In his first season as the WVU defensive coordinator, Tony Gibson had a tough day to start the week with the Mountaineer defense. But after having a meeting with his group, he has seen things start to come together a little more.

Defensive line coach Tom Bradley is still adjusting to the process that comes with coaching at WVU. A self-proclaimed creature of habit, Bradley talked about the progression of his defensive line and getting to watch Gibson come into his own as a defensive coordinator.
