Looking at contract details for the 10 West Virginia football assistants
West Virginia now has 10 assistants after completing its coaching staff with the hiring of new outside linebackers coach Dontae Wright from Western Michigan.
Wright had spent two seasons with the Broncos as the safeties coach while having previous stints as a defensive coordinator at Tennessee Tech and again at Morehead State. He also was responsible for specialists, defensive ends and as well as recruiting coordinator between those two stops.
The Kentucky native spent time at Centre College and North Alabama after serving as a graduate assistant at Kentucky from 2007-09 working with the linebackers and defensive line.
A former player at Miami (Oh.), Wright is now signed to a two-year deal with a base salary of $175,000, information that was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
