WVU set to name new offensive line coach

Earlier today Coachscoop.com reported that West Virginia may be looking to hire Stanford assistant coach Ron Crook as the new Mountaineer offensive line coach.

A short time later WVSports.com was the first to confirm that WVU's Dana Holgorsen does intend to replace Bill Bedenbaugh with Crook, who coached the offensive tackles and tight ends for the Cardinal.

A veteran of the college game with 23-years under his belt Crook has spent the majority of his career coaching the offensive line and has also worked with special teams units at several schools.

While at Harvard, Crook's offensive line helped pave the way for Clifton Dawson (2003-06) to set the Ivy League's all-time career rushing record with 4,841 yards. Eight of Crook's players earned first team All-Ivy honors a combined 11 times, including tackle James Williams, who was a three-time All-America and first team All-Ivy selection.

Crook, a Parkersburg, WV native, earned his degree in physical education from West Liberty State in 1991. Ron and his wife, Stacy have three children - Andrew, Cian and Kenley


Crook will now go through the vetting process at West Virginia and could be officially hired within the next week. WVSports.com will bring you more information as it becomes available.
