|Frank Kurth to replace Holliday
Frank Kurth is returning home. To his home position that is.
The West Virginia football coaches merry-go-round continued Tuesday when Kurth, former offensive line coach at Kent, was named the Mountaineers' receivers coach.
Kurth replaces long-time assistant "Doc" Holliday, who recently accepted an assistant position at North Carolina State, and is the
second addition to the Mountaineers' staff
this offseason. West Virginia also hired Bill Stewart, who was originally hired to coach wide receivers
but will now coach quarterbacks.
"I am really pleased that in Frank, we've been able to attract and hire an extremely experienced coach," WVU coach Don Nehlen said in a press release.
Kurth, also coached full time at the University of Indiana (1992-96), Miami, Ohio (90-91) and Toledo (89-90). He is a graduate of Ball State where he was a three-year letterman at wide receiver and earned Academic All-America honors and the school's male Scholar-Athlete Award.
"Since I played receiver in college, I've always had a special interest in opportunities to coach that position," Kurth said in the press release. "I know we have a number of talented players in our group of receivers and I'm eager to work with them and bring them along."
Kurth will head a group that unexpectedly received encouraging news during the winter, when Khori Ivy regained a fifth season thanks to a new National Collegiate Athletic Association rule.
The rule allows players who lose a year to Prop 48, but still earn their degree in four years to regain that lost year. Ivy is joined by senior Carlos Osegueda, juniors Antonio Brown and Shawn Terry and sophomore A.J. Nastasi.
