Jones is a 1990 graduate of Ferris State University, and spent three seasons at his alma mater (two as offensive coordinator) prior to going to CMU.
"We're very excited to have Butch Jones join the Mountaineer family," says Rodriguez. "He has experience as a coordinator at the I-A level working with a similar offense, and he has recruiting experience in key areas we look to focus on in the future. We look forward to his arrival later this week."
Jones coached this year with former WVU graduate assistant Tony Dews, who coached at California (Pa.) and Holy Cross before moving to CMU prior to last season.
