WVU’s CB Miller out for spring


MORGANTOWN — o o o o o o

This was not the only news Holgorsen had after his team’s Tuesday practice.

Derek Bryant, a defensive end who transferred in last year from UCLA but did not play, was dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules.

No further information was given.

And there has also been a position change made necessary by fullback Matt Lindamood’s leaving the team just before spring break.

The former runner-up as West Virginia’s prep Player of the Year out of Parkersburg had been troubled by a neck injury that forced him to give up the game.

Redshirt senior Donovan Miles was moved from linebacker to fullback to help fill out the numbers.

“Donovan will find more playing time on offense,” Holgorsen said.

Holgorsen doesn’t have depth at the position but says he has been very pleased with the work done by Ryan Clarke this spring.

“Clarke has been doing great,” Holgorsen said.

The time for spring break is always an interesting time because the players have spent a week working out in a different manner.

“We had a little run Monday morning, and some of them showed us what they had for breakfast,” Holgorsen quipped.

The coaches also took time to get away from football for a while, Holgorsen saying he got in some family time.
