West Virginia's new offensive assistants have yet to sign their contracts, according to the University's Office of the Vice President for Legal Affairs and General Counsel.
Offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting Dana Holgorsen, offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh, running backs coach Robert Gillespie and inside receivers coach Shannon Dawson signed a term sheet when hired in early January, however, newly named wide receivers coach Daron Roberts signed a term sheet earlier this month when hired but has yet to sign a contract, as well, according to Senior Associate General Counsel Gary G. Furbee, II.
Athletic Director Oliver Luck said last week he wasn't sure whether Holgorsen had signed his contract, but that he was not worried.
"I really don't know. I'd have to check," Luck said. "The term sheets have been signed. There are no issues with that."
The Charleston Daily Mail reported on Monday that defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel had received a new, three-year, $400,000 per season deal. That contract has not been received by the University's Office of the Vice President for Legal Affairs and General Counsel yet, Furbee said.
Since Holgorsen and his staff was hired at WVU, they have been either on the road recruiting or taking care of spring drills.
Kramer signs another
West Virginia head volleyball coach Jill Kramer signed her second recruit, Halle Kearney, to the 2011 roster.
"We are very excited about adding Halle to our team in the fall," Kramer said in a release. "We expect her to make an immediate impact on the court. She's a very driven player and is exceptional in the classroom, as well. She will give us some much needed size at the pin."
Kearney, a 6-foot-3 outside hitter and Middleburg, Ohio, native, has signed a national letter-of-intent with the Mountaineers after a standout career at Magnificat High School.
With a hitting average above .500, Kearney was named all-Ohio as she led her school to the Elite Eight in 2010 and the Final Four in 2009.
Kearney was also a top player for Maverick 18 Elite, which won the Powerhouse Tournament and the Canadian-American Tournament in Buffalo this past season.
Kearney joins Evyn McCoy (Clare, Ill., Sycamore High) in the 2011 incoming class.
