Second Shot

Greg Frey has joined the West Virginia University football staff, head coach Rich Rodriguez announced today. Frey will serve as offensive line coach for the Mountaineers.

Frey comes to WVU from South Florida, where he has spent the past 11 seasons on the staff. Frey was the Bulls' defensive line coach in 1999 and has coached the offensive line since the 2000 season. He started on the USF coaching staff from the program's inception, serving as a graduate assistant from 1996-98. Since 2000, Frey has coached four offensive linemen who were either drafted into the NFL or signed as free agents.

"We're very excited to hire Greg Frey as our offensive line coach and bring him into our Mountaineer family," says Rodriguez. "He's coached and has experience in a similar system to ours, and he will be a great fit to our football staff."

A 1996 graduate of Florida State and a native of Clearwater, Fla., Frey was a four-year letterman for the Seminoles and a member of Bobby Bowden's national championship team in 1993. Frey has coached in two bowl games as a member of the South Florida coaching staff with the 2005 Meineke Car Care Bowl and this year's 24-7 USF victory over East Carolina in the bowl.
