West Virginia is expected to hire Troy's Neal Brown for the team's vacant head coach position, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel.

A disciple of Hal Mumme's and Mike Leach's "Air Raid" offenses, Brown has a 35-16 record in four seasons at Troy.

The move comes only two days after former Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen was officially hired at Houston.

However, in three seasons since, Troy racked up a 31-8 record and three bowl wins.

Brown led the Trojans to a 10-3 mark this season which included a win over Buffalo in the Dollar General Bowl and a stunning upset of Nebraska in Lincoln. In 2017, Troy went to No. 25 LSU and won 24-21, manhandling the Tigers physically.

West Virginia went 8-4 in 2018 and finished fourth in the Big 12. He played at Kentucky from 1998-2000 and was a two-year letterman, catching 10 passes, including one for a touchdown.

Brown, who grew up in Bardstown before moving to Danville, was an all-state wide receiver at Boyle County High School. The Mountaineers will lose star quarterback Will Grier to the National Football League and could end up in the graduate transfer market at that position.
