Casteel Named Defensive Coordinator

WVU football coach Rich Rodriguez has announced that Jeff Casteel will serve as the Mountaineer defensive coordinator for the upcoming season.

Casteel served as co-coordinator with Todd Graham last fall, when WVU ranked 28th in total defense and 4th in turnover margin nationally. Casteel will also continue to coach the WVU linebackers.

"We're excited about the improvements our defense made this year and Jeff had an important role in that progress," says Rodriguez. "We want to continue to build on that success especially with our run defense. I know Jeff is the man for the job."
