Wow! That would be a great hire!
Well guys what do you think, I'm not real familiar with the guy so I'm interested to hear what everyone thinks . If this report is true that is.
If true I kind of like it. I don't know why but it was a name I never even thought of.
Knowing nothing else but reading his bio it seems really solid. Id be interested to know what kind of a recruiter he is and where his ties are.
This would be unreal if true. I would be really happy about this.

Mntneer Steve please tell me where I can get that picture
WV ties, which is a plus. Coached part of the OL (TE and OT) for Stanford which has been outstanding the past few years.
A bit older than I thought Dana would be going after, but brings 22 years of coaching experience

Looks good but my only question is how well will he recruit here?
Does anyone know how he is recruiting wise?
Some people think football is a matter of life or death, but it's far more important than that.
Again it looks like Dana and Ollie have knocked it out of the park in hiring this offseason. A step up if you ask me. Especially with the way Stanfords O-line has been playing the last couple years. Welcome home Mr. Crook.
check your in box
really excited right now sounds like a great hire Stanford's offense has been rock solid recently
He was at Stanford for 2 years. Yes they had great TEs and OL those 2 years but is he ready? The rest of his resume is very weak.
I think recruiting qualifications will be hard to tell on this one as his last 2 stops were Stanford and Harvard. He has a lot less restrictions than either of those two at WVU.
I think recruiting resumes are a bit overblown. A lot of times the coach has less to do with landing a recruit than many think. The best recruiters are usually helped by what they are selling. For instance is Alabamas best recruiter landing the kid or is it Saban and all the rings?
While I agree with this somewhat I also don't mind being cautiously optimistic. His resume isn't filled with failure just experience at smaller schools. He did a good job at Harvard for 8 years apparently. Coaches all come from somewhere.
My Alma Mater too! Hilltoppers represent!
How many TE's and linemen have gone to the NFL from Stanford in the last 2 years. 1st and second round picks. In the past 2 years I am sure he learned something. You don't just get a job at Stanford if your resume is weak.
In all fairness he split O-line duties, so maybe he should get more credit, maybe he should get less. He has no other D-1 experience (i don't count the GA job), so he is still largely unproven. I am fine with this hire, but i'll temper my expectations.
Im surprised he didn't get someone that is familiar with his offense.
I think OL coaching has less to do with offensive style and more to due with technique and mentality.
Problem is, we didn’t know what we were doing either. But when we didn’t know what we were doing, we were pretty good at it…..
Exciting news! Would especially be good considering he has roots in WV maybe he will stay longer than a "cup of coffee"
