West Virginia Head Coach Dana Holgorsen Talks New Hiring, Will Grier, and WVU Spring Ball.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - With spring practice in full swing, it was a busy week for West Virginia football. Here, get the updates from head coach Dana Holgorsen on the addition of Florida transfer Will Grier, the signing of wide receivers coach Tyron Carrier and an overview of the Mountaineers' progression through spring.

It's a busy time in the West Virginia Mountaineers football program. On the field, the team is nine practices in to spring ball, but there was more news off the field than on this week. Head coach Dana Holgorsen announced the addition of wide receivers coach Tyron Carrier. Carrier, who was an offensive graduate assistant at Baylor last season, will also work with WVU's kick and punt returners. Carrier was a stellar return man in his college days at Houston, where he was also the Cougars biggest receiving threat in Dana Holgorsen's offense. In the video above, hear Holgorsen detail his relationship with Carrier and what his plans are for him moving forward.

WVU also announced this week that former Florida quarterback Will Grier transferred into the program. Grier was a rising star at Florida before his suspension last season. He will sit out next year, and could have to miss the first six games of the 2017 season depending how the school's appeal of his suspension pans out. Above, hear Holgorsen detail how Grier made his way to Morgantown.

There were a couple of players missing from today's practice, but none for disciplinary reasons. Freshman running back Kennedy McKoy was one of them, as he is traveling home to attend his high school prom. Holgorsen said that's a deal he makes with early enrollees so they don't have to miss out on making those memories.
