WVU brought in JaJuan Seider as running backs coach just days before opening spring practice, which led to an interesting situation where the players had more experience with the system than their position coach … and they loved it.
“It is great to be able to coach a coach. It’s a tough job, but at the same time, it is great I am able to teach him the offense, because I’m able to learn it more,” said junior running back Dustin Garrison.

An update on Pat White:
Word circulating is that San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh – the Harbaugh who did not win the Super Bowl – is interested in Pat White as a potential backup to Colin Kaepernick, the thinking being that if the former West Virginia University quarterback can throw well enough he would have a backup where he didn’t have to change his offensive system should he have to play.
White worked out this week with the 49ers and they seem interested.
Who wouldn’t be?
“I pay attention to how his players react to Coach Harbaugh,” White told USA Today. “They all want to win for him. And he seems to treat them how they want to be treated. I’m excited to get to know him on that level — if I do get that opportunity. I’m very optimistic about making it back to the NFL.”
Hard as it is to believe, Pat White is 27 now and running out of time. It’s been three years since he was released by the Miami Dolphins after a rookie season in which he failed to complete any of his five passes while rushing for 81 yards, getting only a concussion and his release for his effort.
